The Pleasant Kingdom of Tymus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Drameus Arcan with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 3.671 billion Tymusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oleander. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tymusian economy, worth 181 trillion thoms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,517 thoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tymus's national animal is the Friesian horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tymus is ranked 104,687th in the world and 3,468th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.28 Weapons Per Person.
