|Leader||President Rodrigo Santillan|
|Faith||Roman Catholic Church|
The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 12.811 billion Pekwengnians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,550 trillion Crons a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,029 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All the playground's a stage for Pekwengnian schoolchildren, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, millions of Pekwengnians are excellent swimmers, and right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekweng's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Church.
