The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.225 billion Little Tralfamadoreans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Little Tralfamadore to be bombproof, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Little Tralfamadore's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Bokononism, and its currency is the Half-Shell.

Little Tralfamadore is ranked 47th in Florida and 107,325th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -34 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
