The Disputed Territories of Trollgaard is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mustakrakish with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.526 billion Trollgaardians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 74.7%.

The enormous but inefficient Trollgaardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,205 trillion man suits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,682 man suits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, and it's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Trollgaard's national animal is the grendel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Trollism.

Trollgaard is ranked 205,801st in the world and 18th in Heavy Metal Heaven for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -58.3 on the Hayek Index.
