The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 15.478 billion Pekwengnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,022 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,649 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, Katherinia has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The East Pacific, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and spousal homicide rates have tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekweng's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pekweng is ranked 218,774th in the world and 8,977th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 6.07 Insults Per Minute.
