The Empire of Peanu-Butteria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ralph the Nutter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.098 billion Peanu-Butterians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borbagne. The average income tax rate is 90.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Peanu-Butterian economy, worth 579 trillion Vietzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 276,283 Vietzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Peanu-Butterian satellites can detect it, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Peanu-Butteria's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Erglism.

Peanu-Butteria is ranked 124,013th in the world and 69th in Confederacy of Layem for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,503.65 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
