The Friendly Ghost of Thomas Insaniac is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Thomas Insaniac with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.662 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 20.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thomas Insaniacian economy, worth 995 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 102,994 Empty Promiseses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 296,996 per year while the poor average 28,353, 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 27,412th in the world and 810th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.69 on the Human Development Index.
