The United States of Petrasylvania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Millstone with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.933 billion Petrasylvanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Petrasylvanian economy, worth 233 trillion Petraliths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,792 Petraliths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, the climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrasylvania's national animal is the rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petrasylvania is ranked 40,370th in the world and 1,713th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 85.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
