Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Triska is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 353 million Triskans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Future. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Triskan economy, worth 34.0 trillion Seconds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 96,322 Seconds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, and all weapon research has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Triska's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Triska is ranked 19,281st in the world and 202nd in The Internationale for Best Weather, with 150 Meters Of Sunlight.
