The United Socialist States of Peraltan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Magda Koschinsky with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.721 billion Peraltanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plousas. The average income tax rate is 56.5%.

The Peraltanian economy, worth 119 trillion Jens a year, is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,828 Jens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peraltan's national animal is the Shark and its national religion is Atheism.

Peraltan is ranked 137,135th in the world and 232nd in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 15.53 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
