Es una ciudad programada desde su fundacion, cuidadosamente planificada por un arquitecto de origen centroeuropeo que quiso dejar su impronta en la planificacion de la poblacion. Trude cuenta con biblioteca, teatro de la opera, secta cristiana propia y un alcalde empenado en acabar con los libros y la lectura.
