The Queen's State of Petitot is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 23.715 billion Petitotians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Petitotian economy, worth 499 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 21,077 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petitot's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petitot is ranked 18,442nd in the world and 1st in Jamaica for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,234.6 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
