The Free Speech Republic of Thornian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Constitutional King Nathaniel with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.362 billion Thornians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rose. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Thornianian economy, worth 628 trillion Thorns a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 98,795 Thorns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tigers that venture near secret military bases are routinely executed for espionage, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thornian's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Free Will Baptist.

Thornian is ranked 135,803rd in the world and 207th in New Western Empire for Nudest, with 34 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
