The Federal Democratic Republic of Treeford is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Franklin Wade Swanson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.618 billion Treefordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treefordapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Treefordian economy, worth 347 trillion Maples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 132,604 Maples, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Treeford's national animal is the Wild Turkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Treeford is ranked 100,789th in the world and 939th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 18.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
