The Second Republic of Tretrid is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Robert Evans with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.455 billion Tretridians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tretridia. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tretridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Karubles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,117 Karubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, foreign football clubs wave the Tretridian flag before every game, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tretrid's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tretrid is ranked 205,953rd in the world and 6,242nd in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
