The Republic of Thaipursia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by tuju'an with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.048 billion Thaipans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashai. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thaipursian economy, worth a remarkable 5,091 trillion dramas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 282,089 dramas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The giant 80-storey carving of tuju'an in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, and theoretical science is only theoretical. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thaipursia's national animal is the sea turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Thaipursian Orthodox Church.

Thaipursia is ranked 74,973rd in the world and 1st in Kataru Kur Gal for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,960.67 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
