The Lonely North Winds of Perezonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mayor Steven Perez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.007 billion Perezonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity Valley. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The strong Perezonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,609 trillion drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 94,633 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perezonia's national animal is the bunneh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Perezonia is ranked 16,025th in the world and 417th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 232.44 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
