The Kingdom of Pueros is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tori Lankins with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, lack of airports, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.556 billion Puerosians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Puerosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,840 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 226,208 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pueros's national animal is the drosophila melanogaster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is homosexuality.

Pueros is ranked 387th in the world and 1st in Gay Equality for Most Pacifist, with 277.2 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
