The Technological Monarchy of Plangainer is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 750 million Plangainerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Folkhul. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plangainerian economy, worth 87.5 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 116,649 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside. Crime is totally unknown. Plangainer's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plangainer is ranked 68,660th in the world and 4,171st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.4 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
