The Starting-up Paradise of Trigania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Burt Widter with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.018 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.

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 67%, 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.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, religious education is a new government priority, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax Ningis each year. 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, and its currency is the Ningi.

Trigania is ranked 1st in The Axis of Evil and 1,931st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 45 on the Enoch Index.
