The Imperial Republic of Thrul is a massive, safe nation, ruled by His Excellency Valerian with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 2.022 billion Thrulians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voska. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thrulian economy, worth 316 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,539 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, all guns must be registered, there are no more heroes any more, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thrul's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Thrul is ranked 10,682nd in the world and 17th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 89.82 on the Human Development Index.
