The Dominion of Trouble Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Recidivist with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 33.331 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 16,375 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 491,312 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Trouble Nation's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 217,984th in the world and 9,083rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 5.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
