The Democratic Republic of Pedesko is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 326 million Pedeskoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of no. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pedeskoan economy, worth 12.4 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,104 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pedesko's national animal is the Peskeskian Porkpam, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pedesko is ranked 222,141st in the world and 141st in Refugia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.61 Kickbacks Per Hour.
