The Imperium of Tristin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Marshal James Lonergan with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.115 billion Tristinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pitchwoods. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tristinian economy, worth 236 trillion Linalds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 111,707 Linalds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have recently been reintroduced to Tristin, jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and the most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tristin's national animal is the Giant stingray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Machine Cult.

Tristin is ranked 26,110th in the world and 1,141st in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,108.07 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
