The Insane Ramblings of Troll-la-la is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Olaf the Insane Troll with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.73 billion Trolls 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anyanka. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The Troll-la-lan economy, worth a remarkable 2,786 trillion singles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,232 singles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, being dead no longer has any benefits, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, and government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Troll-la-la's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Troll-la-la is ranked 182,209th in the world and 76th in Wysteria for Most Avoided, scoring 0.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
