The Kingdom of Trenaka is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Friedel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.302 billion Trenakans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munich. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trenakan economy, worth 398 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,810 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trenaka's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Trenaka is ranked 77,234th in the world and 382nd in Europe for Highest Drug Use, scoring 82.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
