The United States of Peeel is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Harkinian with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.776 billion Peeelers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Peeelersburg. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peeelian economy, worth 353 trillion Rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,509 Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", citizens must pay to enjoy Peeel's pristine beaches, King Harkinian's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and babies are a small but significant export. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peeel's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Peeel is ranked 219,561st in the world and 7,837th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 54.36 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
