The Holy Green Party of Penybonka Station is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord God Xentra with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.603 billion cosmonauts are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vandoosa City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Penybonka Stationian economy, worth a remarkable 2,982 trillion Ceks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 236,654 Ceks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 915,155 per year while the poor average 41,993, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

Young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penybonka Station's national animal is the Eastern Box Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Cult of Shvonkism.

Penybonka Station is ranked 134,259th in the world and 1st in fondor for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
