The United Empire of Pedran is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Constantinus XV Palaeologus-Makedon with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.87 billion Americans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma Nova. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pedranian economy, worth 848 trillion Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,238 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, there's a revolutionary culture in the nation's dairies, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pedran's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ecumenical Church.

Pedran is ranked 11,033rd in the world and 636th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 173.48 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
