The Republic of Traico is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.915 billion Traicoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Statu. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Traicoan economy, worth 379 trillion Republic Trellans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,309 Republic Trellans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orientation videos remind rookie female politicians that slaps on the bottom are perfectly acceptable forms of communication, birdsong in the mountains has to be loud enough to drown out nearby jackhammers, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Traico's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Traico is ranked 135,487th in the world and 876th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,748.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
