The Cunning Plan of Sichuan Pepper is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Wordy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.082 billion are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 84%, 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.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Sichuan Pepper's national animal is the Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Pepper.

Sichuan Pepper is ranked 25th in Spear Danes and 116,446th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
