The Starting-up Paradise of Trigania is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Burt Widter with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.254 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, the Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69%, 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 latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. 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 2nd in The Axis of Evil and 1,492nd in the world for Safest, scoring 970.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
