The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.563 billion Perpendiculousians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 90 Degree Haven. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism industries.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, citizens must pay to enjoy Perpendiculous's pristine beaches, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perpendiculous's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Capitalism, and its currency is the Gold Bullion.

Perpendiculous is ranked 382nd in Capitalist Paradise and 113,419th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -20 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
