The Grand Duchy of Plumas is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by BounderTree with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.434 billion Plumasii are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clank Town. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plumasim economy, worth a remarkable 1,910 trillion Crystals a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,102 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime is totally unknown. Plumas's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plumas is ranked 2,919th in the world and 169th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.25 Years.
