The Dictatorship of Trainet is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 313 million Trainetians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Trainetian economy, worth 16.3 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 black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 52,101 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trainet's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trainet is ranked 132,611th in the world and 2nd in TerrorStates for Most Developed, scoring 54.35 on the Human Development Index.
