The Starting-up Paradise of Trigania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Burt Widter with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.147 billion Triganians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Triganian economy, worth 189 trillion Ningis a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 7,229 Ningis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Trigania is ranked 28th in The Axis of Evil and 109,650th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -5 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
