The Federal Republic of Peanutlands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jimmy Carter with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.294 billion Peanutlandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peanutlandsian economy, worth 946 trillion Peanuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 150,433 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and citizens are deeply regretting challenging the government to be honest about its intentions. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Peanutlands's national animal is the Peanut and its national religion is Baptist Cult of One.

Peanutlands is ranked 143,230th in the world and 2nd in SOS Brigade for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.99 percentage of bribes refused.
