The Dominion of Trionittern is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elsa Bradford with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.705 billion Trions 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harbor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.1%.

The strong Trionitternian economy, worth 264 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 71,348 Kroner, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 437,105 per year while the poor average 5,111, a ratio of 85.5 to 1.

Warning signs caution Trions where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Trionittern offered the words "peace be upon you", pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and Trionittern has taken the radical step of electing its future leaders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Trionittern's national animal is the Hawksbill Sea turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Trionittern is ranked 99,189th in the world and 4th in Riskivilization for Most Developed, scoring 55.69 on the Human Development Index.
