The Quasi-Governmental Entity of Tropicorp is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.71 billion Tropicoasters are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tropicoast. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The powerhouse Tropicorpian economy, worth 682 trillion Tures a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 53,735 Tures, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 200,830 per year while the poor average 10,069, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, there is now a private sector based on doomsday devices (Tropicorp has found 1 easter egg), Tropicorpian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, and the Tropicorp Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tropicorp's national animal is the Ghost Aye-Aye, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Tropicorp is ranked 33,924th in the world and 43rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Developed, scoring 64.23 on the Human Development Index.
