The Republic of Trrmite is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.631 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Trrmitean economy, worth 57.5 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 Trout Farming, Information Technology, 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 15,848 silver pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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.

Trrmite is ranked 91,717th in the world and 138th in Artificial Solar System for Most Influential, scoring 63 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
