The High Tech Society of Penlopa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarius with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.118 billion Penlopans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solstice. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penlopan economy, worth 284 trillion Lopas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,259 Lopas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Primarius and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penlopa's national animal is the Rena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Penlopa is ranked 62,390th in the world and 282nd in Europeia for Highest Economic Output, with 284 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
