The Pellonese Colony of Patterthippe is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Another Random Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.897 billion Patterthippeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thatterpippe. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patterthippean economy, worth 536 trillion monies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 137,592 monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, military spending is on the increase, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patterthippe's national animal is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thippeanism.

Patterthippe is ranked 186,092nd in the world and 88th in New West Indies for Fattest Citizens, with 7.04 Obesity Rate.
