The Post-Dystopian Pre-Utopia of Thuron is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Trav Alek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.664 billion Twids are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasnikov. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thuronian economy, worth a remarkable 2,448 trillion Slivers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 209,900 Slivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime is totally unknown. Thuron's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Thuron is ranked 19,606th in the world and 43rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
