The Grand and Holy Green Duchy of Thessalian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Duke Erasmus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.097 billion Thessalites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kallisti. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Thessaline economy, worth a remarkable 6,708 trillion gold muslis 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 and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 278,413 gold muslis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, citizens compete to guess the time between the royal lady's contractions, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown. Thessalian's national animal is the reindeer turtle shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Esterazism.

Thessalian is ranked 2,405th in the world and 59th in the West Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 24.29 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
