The Republic of THE Trash is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by mr dump truck with an even hand, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, rampant corporate plagiarism, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.257 billion trash cans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of mr happys funland. The average income tax rate is 35.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong trash economy, worth 105 trillion scraps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 83,894 scraps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, white privilege is a real thing, trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. THE Trash's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is violetism.

THE Trash is ranked 235,995th in the world and 1st in Trashland for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
