The Insatiable Economic Hitmen of Tremalkier is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Khushal Khan with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 34.947 billion Tremalkians 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bunker. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tremalkierian economy, worth an astonishing 27,465 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 785,917 Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,154,696 per year while the poor average 46,920, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, jaywalkers are condemned to lives of poverty for their heinous crimes, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. 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. Tremalkier's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is La´citÚ.

Tremalkier is ranked 165,625th in the world and 80th in Wysteria for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.91 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
