The Principality of Trotterdam is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 15.3 billion Trotterdammers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trotterdam. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Trotterdam economy, worth a remarkable 5,880 trillion bits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 384,341 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, children are raised bilingual from an early age, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Trotterdam's border. Crime is totally unknown. Trotterdam's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.

Trotterdam is ranked 149,534th in the world and 38th in Pony Lands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.58 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
