The Free Land of Little Tralfamadore is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.522 billion Little Tralfamadoreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewater. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Little Tralfamadorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,380 trillion Half-Shells a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 217,773 Half-Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Kilgore Trout sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. 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 1,130th in the world and 1st in Florida for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 78 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
