The Democratic States of Termathe is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Neo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.799 billion Termatheans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Termathean economy, worth 248 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 137,927 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Termathe's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Termathe is ranked 213,011th in the world and 8,896th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 11,310.04 Standard Monetary Units.
