OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.165 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 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, the government seizes all major gold finds, Max Barry is this year's Miss Little Tralfamadore, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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 2nd in Florida and 10,397th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 72 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
