The Neo-Industrial Paradise of Tromek is a massive, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.514 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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 Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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.

Tromek is ranked 12th in The West Side and 116,971st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.005 Stalins.
