The Federal Republic of Thornisk is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Thorn the Federalísimo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.407 billion Thorniskians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorn Iskn. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Thorniskian economy, worth 124 trillion perzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 88,775 perzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thornisk's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thornisk is ranked 138,116th in the world and 6,096th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.69 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
