The Free Land of Trashkanistan73 is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 486 million Trashkans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The powerhouse Trashkanistan73ian economy, worth 50.2 trillion Rock dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 103,278 Rock dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 414,558 per year while the poor average 17,241, a ratio of 24.0 to 1.

Foundling babies rarely make it off the doorsteps they are abandoned on, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Trashkanistan73's national animal is the Xenomorph, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trashkanistan73 is ranked 91,800th in the world and 168th in Wintreath for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
