Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Petre is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 24.393 billion Petreans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Petrean economy, worth 785 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Automobile Manufacturing industry. Average income is 32,204 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Petre in an international press conference, and Petre has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petre's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Petre is ranked 69,035th in the world and 8th in The Awakening for Most Devout, with 22.68 Prayers Per Hour.
