The Insatiable Economic Hitmen of Tremalkier is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Khushal Khan with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.744 billion Tremalkierians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bunker. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Tremalkier's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is La´citÚ, and its currency is the Crown.

Tremalkier is ranked 166th in Wysteria and 112,214th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -115 on the Enoch Index.
