The Associated Dominion of Thurston is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Lau Hok Tin with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.31 billion Thurstoners 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Britain. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thurstoner economy, worth 123 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,515 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, and fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit. Crime is totally unknown. Thurston's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Thurston is ranked 6,772nd in the world and 101st in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.77 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
