The People's Republic of Trasselnau is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 467 million Toraserus are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Trasselnauan economy, worth 15.1 trillion Raikusumākus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 32,319 Raikusumākus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Trasselnau City, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trasselnau's national animal is the Adorā, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Trasselnau is ranked 159,654th in the world and 232nd in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
