The Most Serene Republic of PEPEP is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Great Donie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.198 billion PEPEPians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grobie Junction. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient PEPEPian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Staffords a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 207,353 Staffords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Snozzcumber, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and the comic book series 'Great Donie and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown. PEPEP's national animal is the Snozzcumber, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

PEPEP is ranked 135,491st in the world and 5,439th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -54.56 on the Rand Index.
