The Forever Dying Republic of Thils is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President John Thilz with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.234 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 large, 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 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thilsian economy, worth 916 trillion Eaglettes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,062 Eaglettes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Thils's radio stations, and homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Thils is ranked 14,169th in the world and 201st in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 147,062.3 Standard Monetary Units.
