The Nation of Transfermium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Boris Vasiliovich Ivanov with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 10.657 billion Transfermians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubnium. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Transfermian economy, worth a remarkable 1,807 trillion Transfermian Roubles 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 169,615 Transfermian Roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Transfermium's national animal is the Tabby Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Walpoleism.

Transfermium is ranked 96,288th in the world and 154th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Politically Free, scoring 66.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
