The Kingdom of Trastamara Islands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Alfonso II with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.473 billion Trastamara Islanders 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Fernando. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Trastamara Islander economy, worth 92.7 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,945 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and golden statues of Jaguars line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trastamara Islands's national animal is the Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Trastamara Islands is ranked 180,876th in the world and 8,897th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.87 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
