The Holy Empire of Plaquera is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Comrade with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 19.946 billion Plaquerans 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Plaquera Blood Tithe, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaquera's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the human life.

Plaquera is ranked 137th in Gatesville Inc and 110,201st in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -286 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
