The Democratic Republic of Transbiansylvania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Secretary Juanita Salinas with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.067 billion Transbiansylvanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marshagrad. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Transbiansylvanian economy, worth 409 trillion Ludoes 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,376 Ludoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned coastal timber rattlesnakeball fields, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Transbiansylvania's national animal is the coastal timber rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Transbiansylvania is ranked 14,189th in the world and 224th in The Communist Bloc for Most Secular, with 80.99 Atheism Rate.
