The Hip 2 B Square of Percy J Pickleface is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 18.4 billion Percy J Picklefaceans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, a government program is underway to revitalize Percy J Pickleface's beaches, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Percy J Pickleface's many privately-owned prisons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Percy J Pickleface's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Kitty Treat.

Percy J Pickleface is ranked 2nd in A Van Down by the River and 17,827th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 144 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
