The Retired Newsagent of Pendragonania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sturmhauptfüher Cornelia Von Pendragon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.203 billion Pendragonanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pendragonanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,300 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 180,593 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pendragonania's national animal is the Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Pendragonania is ranked 3,931st in the world and 76th in The East Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 168.11 Kickbacks Per Hour.
