The Allied States of Perisno is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Friedrich Falkenberg with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, feral children, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 1.366 billion Perisnans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perisnia. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Perisnoan economy, worth 104 trillion Rubes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Retail, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,559 Rubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, workers' complaints never reach central planning, and the Perisno Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perisno's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Perisno is ranked 141,706th in the world and 294th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
