Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.333 billion Little Tralfamadoreans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewater. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Little Tralfamadorean economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion Half-Shells a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,734 Half-Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government's stance on marriage is 'Let Little Tralfamadoreans marry themselves', burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Little Tralfamadore to be bombproof, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is totally unknown. Little Tralfamadore's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Bokononism.

Little Tralfamadore is ranked 68,277th in the world and 11th in Florida for Most Extreme, scoring 18.76 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
