The Republic of Penrith is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ribboneh with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.122 billion Penrithians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinsley. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Penrithian economy, worth 195 trillion Penrith Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,372 Penrith Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Penrith's radio stations, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Penrith Dollar treacle machine, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and high food prices have reduced the national diet to staple foods and water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Penrith's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Penrith is ranked 170th in the world and 138th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 349 Valid Endorsements.
