The Kingdom of Plembobria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alec Durand with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and vat-grown people. The compassionate population of 12.28 billion Plembobrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rethel. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Plembobrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,697 trillion plemps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,238 plemps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every noble family has a 'personal file' on record courtesy of the central intelligence service, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plembobria's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Rethenism.

Plembobria is ranked 142,754th in the world and 6,175th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.33 on the Rand Index.
