The Matriarchy of Tragedyland is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.204 billion Tragedylandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vergate sul Membro. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Tragedylandian economy, worth 97.9 trillion soldinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 30,562 soldinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, straitjackets are a common religious garb, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tragedyland's national animal is the tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tragedyland is ranked 48,500th in the world and 1,473rd in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 92.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
