The Republic of Troslovia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ben Dover with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.533 billion Troslovians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troslovia City. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Troslovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 164,566 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Troslovia's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is non-existent.

Troslovia is ranked 9,862nd in the world and 35th in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 86.45 on the Human Development Index.
