The Ethereal Communion of Penthievre is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Metan with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.347 billion Penthievreans 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trebrenka. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Penthievrean economy, worth a remarkable 7,407 trillion Vorages 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, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. 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 a breathtaking 554,972 Vorages, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The country is preparing for war, war criminals are given full state funerals, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penthievre's national animal is the Purcona, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vektrelian.

Penthievre is ranked 12,310th in the world and 661st in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,685.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
