The 🌈 Proud Tribes 🌈 of Petea is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ariki Heikura with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.598 billion Pētea are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pūtaputapu. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pētea economy, worth 632 trillion Tāras a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,506 Tāras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious terrorism is considered to be an Act of God by insurance companies, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Petea's national animal is the Tropicbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pētea Animism.

Petea is ranked 235,226th in the world and 4,169th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 21.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
