The Military Dictatorship of Penarastaria is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Martial Governor Maximilian I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.728 billion Penarastarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munivit Civitatem. The average income tax rate is 83.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Penarastarian economy, worth 456 trillion Penars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 264,354 Penars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Penarastarian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, it's not mass murder when the government does it, and foreign nationals are widely distrusted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penarastaria's national animal is the Bubonic Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Leader Worship.

Penarastaria is ranked 151,227th in the world and 659th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 32.67 Workforce Participation Rate.
