The Elected Monarchy of World Trade is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Monarch Elect with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.588 billion World Tradians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth 699 trillion Crypto-pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,827 Crypto-pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

World Trade is ranked 94,884th in the world and 161st in Thaecia for Most Average, scoring 36.13 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
