The Colony of Thedzoa is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enforced nudity, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 933 million Thedzoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thed. The average income tax rate is 36.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thedzoan economy, worth 99.0 trillion euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,155 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Thedzoa, wolves with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, and health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thedzoa's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thedzoa is ranked 213,070th in the world and 209th in Shinka for Least Corrupt Governments, with 71.03 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
