The Free Land of Pen Blanityion is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.879 billion Pen Blanityionians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pen Blanityionian economy, worth 451 trillion Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,860 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, several inches are being added to first class seating, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime is totally unknown. Pen Blanityion's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pen Blanityion is ranked 209,939th in the world and 433rd in Forest for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
