The Friendly Ghost of Thomas Insaniac is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Thomas Insaniac with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.647 billion Salvarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salvaria Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thomas Insaniacian economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 trillion Empty Promiseses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 103,739 Empty Promiseses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,144 per year while the poor average 28,558, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Thomas Insaniac's national animal is the Mutual Funds, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is British Electro Funk.

Thomas Insaniac is ranked 30,225th in the world and 885th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 103,739.06 Standard Monetary Units.
