The Kingdom of The Tree States is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Tree with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.455 billion Trees are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trestingrad. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tree economy, worth a remarkable 1,643 trillion Tree Bits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. 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 an amazing 254,645 Tree Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, no true communist is an unbeliever, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tree States's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yellowism.

The Tree States is ranked 26,748th in the world and 1,160th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,872.37 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
