The Democratic People's Republic of Thomura is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Him with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.194 billion Thomurans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomura City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thomuran economy, worth a remarkable 4,892 trillion Thomuran Yecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 532,138 Thomuran Yecks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, and it is often said that only Him could bring down Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thomura's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Adoration of the Supreme Leader.

Thomura is ranked 169,079th in the world and 6,847th in the Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -21.25 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
