The Republic of Trolleborg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Vladimir Finn with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 21.675 billion Trolleborgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trolleborgian economy, worth a remarkable 5,844 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 269,642 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, most ambassadors from Trolleborg retire only a few years after being appointed, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and saying "don't do anything that Vladimir Finn wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. 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 183,281st in the world and 6,979th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 58.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
