The Desert Hellhole of Tremulistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Colonel Lance Degraff with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.485 billion Tremulistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tremulehr. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tremulistanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,011 trillion Nobs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 244,629 Nobs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 945,995 per year while the poor average 43,408, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Tremulistanians any less frightened, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and maritime signalling has become tedious since only the Tremulistanian flag can be displayed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Tremulistan's national animal is the Bonobo Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fundamentalism.

Tremulistan is ranked 169,345th in the world and 6,987th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring -5 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
