The Serene Republic of Triestine is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.184 billion Triestines hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyeze. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Triestini economy, worth a remarkable 1,468 trillion Kalls a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,526 Kalls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and populations of two-headed Penguins have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Triestine's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Triestine is ranked 8,922nd in the world and 172nd in the West Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.58 bananas ingested per day.
