The Borderlands of Troyskova is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23 million Troyskovans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 36.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Troyskovan economy, worth 1.50 trillion Troyskovan Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,058 Troyskovan Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

On hunt days the unpleasant peasant runs in lieu of the pheasant, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Troyskova's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Troyskova is ranked 124,180th in the world and 6,331st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 38.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
