Trive 38

Population9.857 billion

LeaderEmperor Yuri Yakovlev


The Galactical Ruthenian Empire of Trive 38 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Yuri Yakovlev with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.857 billion Trivians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavlovskiy-Kamchatsky. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Trivian economy, worth a remarkable 3,475 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 352,593 rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,376,762 per year while the poor average 61,591, a ratio of 22.4 to 1.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, and the newest shade developed by Trive 38's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Trive 38's national animal is the rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Trive 38 is ranked 380th in the world and 2nd in International Democratic Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,140.7 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
