The Elected Monarchy of World Trade is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Monarch Elect with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.54 billion World Tradians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth 677 trillion Crypto-pounds 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, 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 an impressive 191,493 Crypto-pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

World Trade is ranked 20,805th in the world and 88th in Thaecia for Most Influential, scoring 1,458 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
