The Dominion of Trouble Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Recidivist with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 32.154 billion Trouble Nationians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crematoria. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Trouble Nationian economy, worth an astonishing 16,006 trillion Credits 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 497,811 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. Trouble Nation's national animal is the Hellhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Trouble Nation is ranked 225,465th in the world and 10,234th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -22.36 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
