The Republic of Holy Penen Strofflennejas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.829 billion Holy Penen Strofflennejasians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Holy Penen Strofflennejasian economy, worth 209 trillion francs 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, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. 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 74,109 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Penen Strofflennejas's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Holy Penen Strofflennejas is ranked 15,536th in the world and 593rd in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,354.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
