The Commonwealth of Trigel is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 341 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buergen. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Trigelian economy, worth 13.3 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 39,143 Donskas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, the Trigelian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. 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 38,039th in the world and 90th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,296.23 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
