The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.697 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucas. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 4,712 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 282,250 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 a healthy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 202,852nd in the world and 1,545th in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.57 Crimes Per Hour.
