The Dominion of Trouble Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Recidivist with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 35.643 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 17,631 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 494,665 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. 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 579th in the world and 27th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 277.45 quips per hour.
