The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.837 billion 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.
Euthanasia is legal, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', almost all of Perpendiculous's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Perpendiculous's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Capitalism, and its currency is the Gold Bullion.
