The People's Republic of Trinite is a huge, genial nation, notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 466 million Triniteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trina. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Trinitean economy, worth 22.0 trillion Trinkets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 47,274 Trinkets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Leader's hair, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Trinite's national animal is the Meerkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Trinite is ranked 175,811th in the world and 4,182nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.14 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
