The Kingdom of Thurland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King William Arthur IV with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.728 billion Thurlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thurston. The average income tax rate is 85.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Thurlandian economy, worth 331 trillion Thurlandian Shillings a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,843 Thurlandian Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Thurlandians, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, the justice of Thurland is considered superior to that of other nations, and attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thurland's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thurlandist.

Thurland is ranked 50,032nd in the world and 1,926th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,591.63 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
