The Federal Republic of Transcostria is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 683 million Transcostrians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tafar. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Transcostrian economy, worth 54.5 trillion Transcostrian marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,772 Transcostrian marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Transcostria's national animal is the ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Transcostria is ranked 56,661st in the world and 2,179th in the South Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 12.93 Kickbacks Per Hour.
