The Jingoistic States of Perpetuam is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, devout population of 603 million Perpetuamians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constance. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Perpetuamian economy, worth 55.0 trillion Ecus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 91,141 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Perpetuamian throne, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perpetuam's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Perpetuam is ranked 146,509th in the world and 5,647th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.71 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
