The Starting-up Paradise of Trigania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Burt Widter with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.437 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 63%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trigania's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Ningi.

Trigania is ranked 5th in The Axis of Evil and 1,812th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55 Whatever.
