The Imperial City and Hinterland of Perchan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser-Meister Grimald von Barschan with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.307 billion Perchanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City of Perchan. The average income tax rate is 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Perchanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,149 trillion Imperial Perchmarks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,290 Imperial Perchmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perchan's national animal is the Perchanian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Perchanian Reformation Church.

Perchan is ranked 1,569th in the world and 19th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 100 Valid Endorsements.
