The Fusean Empire of Penult is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alphonsus VI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.088 billion Fuseans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damarques. The average income tax rate is 26.3%.

The very strong Fusean economy, worth 77.0 trillion Piasters a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 70,732 Piasters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, Alphonsus VI is the self-declared God of all Penult, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Penult's national animal is the Moss Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Irreligious.

Penult is ranked 15,050th in the world and 549th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 64.56 Kickbacks Per Hour.
