The Republic of Troslovia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ben Dover with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.811 billion Troslovians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 2.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Troslovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,074 trillion Dollars 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 amazing 211,462 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Ben Dover's bedroom, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, Troslovia City spends billions upgrading public transport, and prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Troslovia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is non-existent.

Troslovia is ranked 5,442nd in the world and 298th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 211,462.94 Standard Monetary Units.
