Trullion: Alastor 2262, a planet with a collectivist, sort-of-communist
government, a huge population, and a crumbling infrastructure -- 'gruff' and
'deedle' are sweet desserts much loved by the population.  

I think all three of the Alastor novels have been collected in a single
volume... [click click click...] Yep, ISBN 0312869525.  Classic Jack Vance,
and well worth reading.
