The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.28 billion THX1138sters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,074 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 293,657 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, Bowloftoast spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. 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 113th in the world and 2nd in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 217.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
