The Empire of Treznor is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marcus Treznor with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 31.47 billion Treznorans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devonton. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Treznorian economy, worth an astonishing 19,695 trillion golden dubloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 625,865 golden dubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime is totally unknown. Treznor's national animal is the flightless red dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Treznor is ranked 163,077th in the world and 13th in The Vast for Most Primitive, scoring -1477.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
