The Commonwealth of Trigel is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 325 million Trigelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buergen. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Trigelian economy, worth 12.5 trillion Donskas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,489 Donskas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trigel's national animal is the Trigelian turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Trigel is ranked 49,143rd in the world and 86th in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.85 Bank.
