The Jingoistic States of Perpetuam is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, devout population of 616 million Perpetuamians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constance. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Perpetuamian economy, worth 55.1 trillion Ecus 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 89,401 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perpetuam's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Perpetuam is ranked 152,399th in the world and 5,740th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.01 Obesity Rate.
