The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.01 billion THX1138sters 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joe Strummer. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,246 trillion Clangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 231,709 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None.

THX1138 is ranked 34th in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.98 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
