The Rogue Nation of Trogville is a massive, safe nation, ruled by John Richardson with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.803 billion Trogvilleans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trogville National City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Trogvillean economy, worth 491 trillion Trogs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,245 Trogs, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trogville's national animal is the Centaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is National Centaurian of Trogdor.

Trogville is ranked 168,045th in the world and 8,349th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.59 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
