The Republic of Tmth is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Benson with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 938 million Tmthians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The all-consuming Tmthian economy, worth 96.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 103,033 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 305,901 per year while the poor average 27,225, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and Tmthians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tmth's national animal is the golden retriever, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tmth is ranked 48,847th in the world and 2,597th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
