The Dominion of Trouble Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Recidivist with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 40.134 billion Trouble Nationians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 19,662 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 489,917 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,529,182 per year while the poor average 120,515, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, only the richest get to see out of their windows, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor. 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 194,982nd in the world and 4,184th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 41.5 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
