The Matriarchy of Tragedyland is a very large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 165 million Tragedylandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 25.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Tragedylandian economy, worth 4.96 trillion soldinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 30,076 soldinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tragedyland's national animal is the tardigrade.

Tragedyland is ranked 32,885th in the world and 1,246th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.83 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
