The Empire of Trashkanistan73 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erik Strongblood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its feral children, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.35 billion Trashkans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Trashkanistan73ian economy, worth 876 trillion Rock dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 201,386 Rock dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,145,644 per year while the poor average 17,233, a ratio of 66.5 to 1.

The nation's wilderness is only teenage wasteland, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Trashkanistan73's national animal is the Giant Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Breath of The Stars.

Trashkanistan73 is ranked 1,883rd in the world and 8th in Wintreath for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.15 million Standard Monetary Units.
