The Empire of Pead Lan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Amélie Clark with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.455 billion Pead Lanians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bismuth. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pead Lanian economy, worth 115 trillion guilders a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,216 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and nations across the world are quick to praise Amélie Clark's good looks and intellectual prowess. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pead Lan's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Pead Lan is ranked 216,579th in the world and 139th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.49 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
