The Jewel of the South of Triekru is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Octavia Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.434 billion Triekruans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polis. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Triekruan economy, worth a remarkable 1,755 trillion Triekru Kroners 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 272,794 Triekru Kroners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Triekru at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Triekru's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Triekru is ranked 121,077th in the world and 6,357th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 15.81 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
