The Serene Republic of Triestine is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Trond H Westford with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.887 billion Triestines hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyeze. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Triestini economy, worth 945 trillion Kalls a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,891 Kalls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, Trond H Westford's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Triestine's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Triestine is ranked 186,652nd in the world and 5,981st in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.69 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
