The Royal Guards of Thedzos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Elias with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.87 billion Thedzosians 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 Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferod. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thedzosian economy, worth 317 trillion marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 110,520 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Even snitches get stitches, wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thedzos's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sovereignty.

Thedzos is ranked 175,643rd in the world and 95th in Shinka for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -4.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
