The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.966 billion Little Tralfamadoreans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Little Tralfamadorean economy, worth 826 trillion Half-Shells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 138,474 Half-Shells, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Little Tralfamadore's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bokononism.

Little Tralfamadore is ranked 1st in Florida and 1,664th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 352 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
