The Cunning Plan of Sichuan Pepper is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wordy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.197 billion, 31 million of whom are zombies, Pepperians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although the Environment and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepper Pot City. The average income tax rate is 87%, 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.

Sichuan Pepper has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and Sichuan Pepper's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Sichuan Pepper's national animal is the Clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Desu, and its currency is the Pepper.

Sichuan Pepper is ranked 20th in Wrangel and 107,408th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Sichuan Pepper is currently researching a cure.
