The Dead Nation of Peteland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by no one with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.571 billion Petelandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruined City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Petelandian economy, worth 518 trillion Escudoes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 92,996 Escudoes, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.
Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Imperial Liondogs' dominate wildlife preserves, billions of Escudos are being blown on orbital weapons development, and a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peteland's national animal is the Imperial Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
