“Where money equals happiness!”

The United Corporate Governance of Tromek is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.637 billion Tromekians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tirete. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.
A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, cities are engulfed by smog, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Tromek's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Tromekan Dollar.
