The Pestilence of Thromsa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ralph Dawson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.826 billion Thromsnonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacifica-Saints-Orleans. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thromsnonian economy, worth 822 trillion Thromsonian Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 105,148 Thromsonian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Thromsnonian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thromsa's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thromsa is ranked 107,661st in the world and 115th in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 63.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
