The Republic of Pergo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johann Brüger with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 10.218 billion Pergosns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diletsia. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pergoan economy, worth 626 trillion Pregeriums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 61,310 Pregeriums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, war vets look after war animals, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pergo's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pergo is ranked 129,520th in the world and 2nd in Canterbury for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
