The Federasie of The Traansval is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jethro Kendi with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.626 billion Boers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Boer economy, worth 812 trillion Rand a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,615 Rand, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Traansval's national animal is the Transvaal Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Traansval is ranked 147,648th in the world and 17th in Federation of Allies for Most Devout, with 6.5 Prayers Per Hour.
