The Failed Economy Ambassador of Trecdom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Tex with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.215 billion Trekers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Texas. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trecdomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,542 trillion Texan Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Tourism and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 90,105 Texan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Big Tex is a silly poophead, a nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trecdom's national animal is the SeaLion, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Ad astra per aspera.

Trecdom is ranked 26,930th in the world and 313th in 10000 Islands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,651.78 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
