The Republic of Pentisia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jacqueline Linetti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.047 billion Pentisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quindicia. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pentisian economy, worth 339 trillion Pentos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,828 Pentos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Jacqueline Linetti's wardrobe, recognizing the Pentisian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pentisia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pentisia is ranked 31,560th in the world and 1,754th in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 21.86 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
