The Free and Holy Land of Triquetra is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Priestess Jacinth Pedersen with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and fear of technology. The compassionate, devout population of 4.744 billion Victorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triquetra Covenstead. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Victorian economy, worth 351 trillion trefoils a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,061 trefoils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new one trefoil coin also makes a handy throwing-star, life is short but human kindness is endless, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Triquetra's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sgeņil Fithich.

Triquetra is ranked 189,037th in the world and 2nd in Havenhome and Rook Wing for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.27 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
