The Republic of Trolleborg is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Vladimir Finn with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.46 billion Trolleborgians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trolleborg City. The average income tax rate is 23.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trolleborgian economy, worth a remarkable 4,236 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 242,644 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trolleborg's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Trolleborg is ranked 166,303rd in the world and 6,888th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 3.01 Whatever.
