The Grand and Holy Green Duchy of Thessalian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Erasmus with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.262 billion Thessalites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kallisti. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Thessaline economy, worth a remarkable 6,963 trillion gold muslis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 275,642 gold muslis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, citizens compete to guess the time between the royal lady's contractions, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown. Thessalian's national animal is the reindeer turtle shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Esterazism.

Thessalian is ranked 15,838th in the world and 380th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,188.46 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
