The People's Republic of Tropisca is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Hodginius Hodges with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.815 billion Tropiscans 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Hermoso. The average income tax rate is 50.5%.

The powerhouse Tropiscan economy, worth 171 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 94,280 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Tropiscan Blue-Ringed Octopus, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tropisca's national animal is the Tropiscan Blue-Ringed Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Tropiscian.

Tropisca is ranked 118,527th in the world and 8th in HODGE HODGE HODGE for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.93 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
