The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.926 billion THX1138sters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joe Strummer. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,619 trillion Clangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 242,501 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Cuttlefishball fields, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a heathy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 1,359th in the world and 20th in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 11,019.05 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
