The Republic of Outer Peopist is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 36 million Outer Peopistians 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.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The very strong Outer Peopistian economy, worth 2.34 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 64,869 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 198,503 per year while the poor average 16,419, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Outer Peopist's national animal is the Weebolo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Outer Peopist is ranked 52,576th in the world and 2,142nd in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.79 Workforce Participation Rate.
