The Republic of Trotsville is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, aversion to nipples, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.298 billion Trotsvilleans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trotsvillean economy, worth 310 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,098 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Trotsville City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Trotsville" on tails, warning signs caution Trotsvilleans where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', and grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trotsville's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trotsville is ranked 207,576th in the world and 436th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -16.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
