The Federal Republic of Trooporia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 904 million 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crump. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Trooporian economy, worth 94.6 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 104,666 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, military spending is on the increase, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Crump make great practice for foreign snipers. 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 54,653rd in the world and 2,752nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,669.02 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
