The Democratic Republic of PembrokeLand is a huge, genial nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 277 million PembrokeLandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osceola Heights. The average income tax rate is 40.9%.

The strong PembrokeLandian economy, worth 13.3 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 48,126 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PembrokeLand's national animal is the Old Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PembrokeLand is ranked 21,275th in the world and 1,175th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
