The Constitutional Monarchy of Thedairos is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 139 million Thedairosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Thedairosian economy, worth 10.6 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,971 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, birth rates have hit an all-time low, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thedairos's national animal is the dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
