The Hermit Communes of Tricarina is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 715 million Tricarinans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurelia. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tricarinan economy, worth 66.7 trillion Trinacrians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 93,300 Trinacrians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest superhero movie features a caped Wolf with adamantium claws, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, and boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tricarina's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tricarina is ranked 66,185th in the world and 326th in The Internationale for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 390.86 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
