The Electric Purple Clouds of South Pezalia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pez IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed population of 10.047 billion South Pezalians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pezalia City. The average income tax rate is 39%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales industries.
Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government is avowedly atheist, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Pez IV's bedroom. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Pezalia's national animal is the pumpkin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is losing members, and its currency is the broken air conditioner.
