The Holy Medicine Cabinet of Pelanesomunk is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by St Patrick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.554 billion Pelanesomunkians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manhattan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Pelanesomunkian economy, worth 351 trillion gold bars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,683 gold bars, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

St Patrick can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and immigrants flood the job queues as discrimination in the workplace makes a staggering comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pelanesomunk's national animal is the leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Pelanesomunk is ranked 83,706th in the world and 2,436th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 21.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
