The Federal Republic of Peloritania is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.764 billion Peloritanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peloritanian economy, worth 894 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,262 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and a PhD just ain't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peloritania's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Peloritania is ranked 23,893rd in the world and 1,222nd in Balder for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,641.1 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
