Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borg Collective of Tresmius is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Borg Queen with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.445 billion Borg are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicomplex 2. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Borg economy, worth a remarkable 5,929 trillion Nanoprobes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 276,488 Nanoprobes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,840,503 per year while the poor average 15,818, a ratio of 116 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Nanoprobe battlesuits, women are ordered home to reproduce for the glory of the Borg Collective, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Tresmius's national animal is the Picard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Perfection.

Tresmius is ranked 1,685th in the world and 2nd in Star Trek for Most Avoided, scoring 1,086.8 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
