The Neutral State of Thedairos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Elias with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, state-planned economy, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.83 billion Theds 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferod. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thedian economy, worth 263 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 144,057 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is punished, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thedairos's national animal is the red fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacifism.

Thedairos is ranked 155,723rd in the world and 677th in 10000 Islands for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 28,667.44 Standard Monetary Units.
