The Free City of Theoretika is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Alifred Zayre with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 7.72 billion Theoretikans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Theoretikan economy, worth a remarkable 1,517 trillion Theo-creds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,535 Theo-creds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime is totally unknown. Theoretika's national animal is the osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Theoretika is ranked 109,607th in the world and 2nd in The Geosphere for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,244.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
