The People's Republic of Tropisca is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hodginius Hodges with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.277 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 Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 214 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 92,615th in the world and 3rd in HODGE HODGE HODGE for Most Influential, scoring 148 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
