The Republic of Trolleborg is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Vladimir Finn with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.1 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, outspoken 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 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trolleborgian economy, worth a remarkable 4,084 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,844 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, Vladimir Finn's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, Trolleborg has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and military spending is on the increase. 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 95,400th in the world and 3,841st in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 114.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
