The Forever Alive Republic of Thils is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President John Thilz with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.646 billion Thilsians 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thils City. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thilsian economy, worth 573 trillion Eaglettes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 123,504 Eaglettes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, two inland cities have unveiled their new desalination plants, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thils's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Thils is ranked 16,193rd in the world and 298th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 79.49 on the Human Development Index.
