The Stardew Valley Rainbow of Trashsylvania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dan Junior with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.95 billion Trashsylvanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunny Day Double Rainbow. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Trashsylvanian economy, worth 248 trillion Sunbeams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 8,881 Sunbeams, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 29,858 per year while the poor average 1,959, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Trashsylvania's national animal is the Sunbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Trashsylvania is ranked 23,294th in the world and 1,446th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 210.77 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
