The Democratic Republic of Penrith is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 252 million Penrithians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinsley. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Penrithian economy, worth 28.0 trillion Penrith Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 111,189 Penrith Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 432,474 per year while the poor average 19,545, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and Penrith has designated Tinsley as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Penrith's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Penrith is ranked 141,984th in the world and 7,982nd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
