Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Triska is a small, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 32 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Triskan economy, worth 1.02 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 32,005 Seconds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and torture is illegal. 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 152,159th in the world and 444th in The Internationale for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 35,015.1 Standard Monetary Units.
