The Troutarchy of The Redwood Isles is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The High Troutarch with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.612 billion Redwood Islanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Capitale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Redwood Islesian economy, worth 529 trillion Gold-Standards a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,616 Gold-Standards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 583,846 per year while the poor average 24,800, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, medical staff can legally quiet people who ask for a second helping of Salisbury steak, The Redwood Isles's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Redwood Isles's national animal is the Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Troutic Loonism.

The Redwood Isles is ranked 23,979th in the world and 586th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 2,109.85 prayers per hour.
