The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.119 billion THX1138sters are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucas. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,501 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 303,611 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and Bowloftoast's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies. 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 healthy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 84th in the world and 1st in Schopenhauer for Best Weather, with 1,937 Meters Of Sunlight.
