The Banana Republic of Truskawkoland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Great Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.425 billion Truskawkowians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bananowo. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Truskawkolandian economy, worth 355 trillion strawberries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,675 strawberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the new biography of Great Leader is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Truskawkoland's national animal is the gold snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Football.

Truskawkoland is ranked 222,504th in the world and 9,058th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.65 percentage of bribes refused.
