The Constitutional Monarchy of Ischyri Thelis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by His Lordship Hephaestus Thelis with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.46 billion Ischyri Thelisians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thelis City. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ischyri Thelisian economy, worth 243 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,908 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ischyri Thelis's national animal is the Blue tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shaggyism.

Ischyri Thelis is ranked 26,697th in the world and 1,207th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,513.23 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
