The Republic of Trident Taiwan is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 161 million Trident Taiwanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Trident Taiwanian economy, worth 8.40 trillion Haxes 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance 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 52,186 Haxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, censors protect the public from lewd images of Bigtopians in duffel coats, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Trident Taiwan City's water use, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trident Taiwan's national animal is the Citizens, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trident Taiwan is ranked 17,660th in the world and 17th in The Free Nations Region for Most Extreme, scoring 38.33 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
