The Thankdom of ThanksTNX is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Blessing with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.491 billion Thankfuls 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gratitude. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Thankfulian economy, worth 275 trillion Thanks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 110,768 Thanks, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, economists claim no news is good news, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Thankfulian Space Agency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ThanksTNX's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ThanksTNX is ranked 2,325th in the world and 381st in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 66 Valid Endorsements.
