LeaderSvn Arbeşk


The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Svn Arbeşk with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.949 billion Thovens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asv. The average income tax rate is 91.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Thovenan economy, worth a remarkable 1,014 trillion Vxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 204,962 Vxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Thovenan justice, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thoven's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thoven is ranked 91,082nd in the world and 4,236th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 54.48 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
