The Dominion of Trouble Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Recidivist with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.759 billion Trouble Nationians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crematoria. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Trouble Nationian economy, worth an astonishing 14,138 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 475,102 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, Recidivist spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license. Crime is totally unknown. Trouble Nation's national animal is the Hellhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trouble Nation is ranked 2,297th in the world and 72nd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 419 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
