The Starting-up Paradise of Trigania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Burt Widter with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.965 billion, 16.552 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. 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 30th in The Axis of Evil and 112,974th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Trigania is currently considering its options.
