The Empire of Travencore is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Benjamin J Abraham with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.742 billion Travencoreans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trivandrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Travencorean economy, worth 854 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,892 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lobbying has been outlawed, a popular artist is claiming that a raw steak with a dog turd on it is a portrait of Benjamin J Abraham, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Travencore, and midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Travencore's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Secular.

Travencore is ranked 135,677th in the world and 82nd in India for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.33 on the Rand Index.
