The Federal Republic of Trooporia is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.877 billion Trooporians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crump. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Trooporian economy, worth 421 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 146,405 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trooporia's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Trooporia is ranked 9,615th in the world and 375th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 314.91 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
