The Insatiable Economic Hitmen of Tremalkier is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Khushal Khan with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 40.654 billion Tremalkians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 32,340 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 795,505 Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,421,079 per year while the poor average 7,537, a ratio of 984 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 245,547th in the world and 63rd in Wysteria for Most Inclusive, scoring 4.23 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
