The Kingdom of Trondstorm is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Frederick II of Trondstorm with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 838 million Trondstormians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Trondstormian economy, worth 59.2 trillion Crowns a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,647 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Trondstorm, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Trondstorm City" t-shirts. Crime is totally unknown. Trondstorm's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Trondstorm is ranked 41,755th in the world and 2,101st in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
