The Matriarchy of Tragedyland is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.745 billion Tragedylandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vergate sul Membro. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Tragedylandian economy, worth 49.3 trillion soldinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 28,257 soldinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Babies are a small but significant export, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tragedyland's national animal is the tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tragedyland is ranked 60,739th in the world and 2,641st in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 24.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
