The Free Land of Thyndra is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 355 million Thyndrans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aka. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Thyndran economy, worth 20.0 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 56,436 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, Max Barry is this year's Miss Thyndra, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thyndra's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thyndra is ranked 171,605th in the world and 1,758th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
