The Principality of Trotterdam is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 18.52 billion Trotterdammers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trotterdam. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Trotterdam economy, worth a remarkable 7,728 trillion bits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 417,304 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime is totally unknown. Trotterdam's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.

Trotterdam is ranked 85th in the world and 1st in Pony Lands for Safest, scoring 227.66 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
