Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.666 billion Little Tralfamadoreans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewater. The average income tax rate is 33.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Little Tralfamadorean economy, worth 904 trillion Half-Shells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,676 Half-Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, shops were recently ransacked as cigarettes returned to the shelves, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. Crime is almost non-existent. Little Tralfamadore's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Bokononism.

Little Tralfamadore is ranked 16th in Florida and 80,046th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7 on the Hayek Index.
