The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 12.42 billion Pekwengnians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion Crons a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,449 Crons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is coughing up funds for lung cancer victims, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. 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, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Church.

Pekweng is ranked 25,259th in the world and 676th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 52.62 Quips Per Hour.
