The Grand Duchy of Lower Transjuria is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, lack of airports, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 469 million Transjurians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The very strong Transjurian economy, worth 30.1 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,237 guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 197,133 per year while the poor average 16,192, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Transjuria's national animal is the Transjural Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Transjuria is ranked 44,307th in the world and 4th in Grand Juran Colonies for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 99.02 on the Hayek Index.
