The Queendom of Pecanagle is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 388 million Pecanagleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Pecan. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pecanaglean economy, worth 19.6 trillion Chips 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 50,638 Chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, nations that kill a Pecanaglean can expect a strongly worded letter, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pecanagle's national animal is the tree frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pecanagle is ranked 116,028th in the world and 1,136th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 16.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
