The United Socialist States of Tropac is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 317 million Tropacians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Tropacian economy, worth 17.3 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 54,463 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tropac's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tropac is ranked 155,580th in the world and 8,606th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
