The Commonwealth of Trigel is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 653 million Trigelians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buergen. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Trigelian economy, worth 24.3 trillion Donskas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,157 Donskas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", Trigelian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trigel's national animal is the Trigelian turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Trigel is ranked 46,013th in the world and 67th in The Western Isles for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,921.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
