The Tractionist States of The Retrofuture is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.226 billion Tractionists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.3%.

The very strong Tractionist economy, worth 65.7 trillion Quirkes a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,572 Quirkes, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Retrofuture's national animal is the Tractionist Eagle.

The Retrofuture is ranked 101,971st in the world and 19th in United roleplay authority for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
