The High Tech Society of Penlopa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primarius with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.239 billion Penlopans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solstice. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Penlopan economy, worth 313 trillion Lopas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 140,147 Lopas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penlopa's national animal is the Rena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
