The Randomness of Trecdom2 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Trec with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 28.469 billion Trekies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SF Command. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Trekie economy, worth a remarkable 5,442 trillion Popsicles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 191,178 Popsicles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trecdom2's national animal is the Phanatic, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Outer Space.

Trecdom2 is ranked 6,789th in the world and 8th in Texas for Highest Food Quality, scoring 176.06 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
