The Holy Kingdom of South Pernambuco is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 980 million Pernambucans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Recife. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South-Pernambucan economy, worth 119 trillion Pernambuco Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,630 Pernambuco Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, autarky's deemed malarkey as foreign bric-a-brac's brought back, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Pernambuco's national animal is the Donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Pernambuco is ranked 247,612th in the world and 9,570th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 52.4 percentage of bribes refused.
