The Lonely Hearts Club Band of Sargent Pepper is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 649 million, 647 million of whom are zombies, Sargent Pepperians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PepperLand. The average income tax rate is 69%, 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.

Students cut up leftover All you need is Loves during Arts and Crafts, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, graffiti graces every city's streets, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sargent Pepper's national animal is the Pepper Land Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is The Brotherhood of Man, and its currency is the All you need is Love.

Sargent Pepper is ranked 1st in Pepperland and 107,597th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Sargent Pepper is currently considering its options.
