The United States of Theberstan is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 149 million Theberstani enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Theberstanian economy, worth 9.62 trillion Theberstani Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 64,536 Theberstani Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, the police insist that racism does not exist, and the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theberstan's national animal is the Bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Theberstan is ranked 86,512th in the world and 144th in First World Order for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,149.78 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
