The Commonwealth of Pekland is a small, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 20 million Peklandians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 10.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Peklandian economy, worth 1.00 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,193 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Pekland's national animal is the Snow petrel.

Pekland is ranked 141,384th in the world and 26th in Founderless for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 30.41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
