The United States of Trulu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ray Branch with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.872 billion Truluans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Truluan City. The average income tax rate is 25.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Truluan economy, worth 168 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 89,917 Sand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trulu has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Trulu's national animal is the Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Trulu is ranked 134,358th in the world and 2,321st in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 205 billion Standard Monetary Units.
