The Republic of Greater Pelestone is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 736 million Pelestoneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enoch. The average income tax rate is 46.1%.

The all-consuming Greater Pelestonean economy, worth 75.3 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,292 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fox is one of the most popular forenames in Greater Pelestone, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Greater Pelestonean sovereign territory, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Pelestone's national animal is the fox.

Greater Pelestone is ranked 139,073rd in the world and 75th in Soviet Democracy for Fattest Citizens, with 8.16 Obesity Rate.
