The Federation of Tholosis is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 391 million Tholosisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VŠlica. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tholosisian economy, worth 34.9 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 89,214 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime is totally unknown. Tholosis's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tholosis is ranked 36,233rd in the world and 248th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 30.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
