The Land of Penderwyll is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pender with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 24.428 billion Penderwyllians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Kapital. The average income tax rate is 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Penderwyllian economy, worth a remarkable 2,362 trillion Urstromtalers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 96,724 Urstromtalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penderwyll's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Penderwyll is ranked 120,222nd in the world and 1st in The Lleuian Triad for Most Authoritarian, with 624.45 milliStalins.
