The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.565 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are on the agenda. 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. 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 1st in Florida and 1,929th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 331 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
