The Jewel of the South of Triekru is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Octavia Blake with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.34 billion Triekruans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polis. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Triekruan economy, worth 986 trillion Triekru Kroners 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 amazing 227,298 Triekru Kroners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Triekru's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Triekru is ranked 62,864th in the world and 3,126th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 70.86 Workforce Participation Rate.
