The Republic of Thetopia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 615 million Thetopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euclid. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Thetopian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Epsilons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 49,114 Epsilons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, gossip magazines have pictures of Leader sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thetopia's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thetopia is ranked 50,803rd in the world and 1,955th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 47.37 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
