The Trident Union

Population226 million

CurrencyTrident Hax
AnimalChinese Hamster

The Democratic Republic of The Trident Union is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 226 million Tridents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong a Trident economy, worth 17.1 trillion Trident Haxes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,667 Trident Haxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, and demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Trident Union's national animal is the Chinese Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Trident Union is ranked 53,223rd in the world and 119th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,920.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
