The Republic of Trolleborg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Vladimir Finn with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.417 billion Trolleborgians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trolleborg City. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trolleborgian economy, worth a remarkable 5,717 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 266,963 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The news is showing footage of Vladimir Finn bullying an old man to the point of tears, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, and visions of giant pink cats are a common side effect after Trolleborgians eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trolleborg's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Trolleborg is ranked 22,382nd in the world and 714th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,083.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
