The Technocracy of Thriven is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Greysong with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.021 billion Thrivenians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suburbia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Thrivenian economy, worth 282 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,894 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and career advisors ask sociopathic orphan girls if they have considered becoming professional assassins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thriven's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Songyian.

Thriven is ranked 238,391st in the world and 130th in Confederacy of Allied States for Best Weather, with -19 Meters Of Sunlight.
