The Federation of Trrmite is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.564 billion Trrmiteans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Trrmitean economy, worth 61.8 trillion silver pieces 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. 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 11,099 silver pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Voting is compulsory, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trrmite's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
