The Queendom of Perpia is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12 million Perpianese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Perpianese economy, worth 667 billion Perpias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,664 Perpias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A the South Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Perpia #1 for number twos, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Perpia's national animal is the Perpianese Catfish, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Perpia is ranked 142,252nd in the world and 4,753rd in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 668 billion Standard Monetary Units.
