The Dictatorship of Pertenia is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme leader Alexander II of Pertenia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 866 million Pertenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Arcadia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The strong Pertenian economy, worth 66.7 trillion Perthings a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,032 Perthings, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Skyscrapers get built in just days, Pertenian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, Supreme leader Alexander II of Pertenia has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and racial supremacists have a burning desire to deal with immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pertenia's national animal is the Tigar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pertenia is ranked 182,192nd in the world and 21st in Selene for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring zero on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
