The Democratic Collective Realm of Petrokovia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Ovelia Sagal˙n with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 14.746 billion Vesperians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsongaso-Toma. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Petrokovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,973 trillion Rukyans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,812 Rukyans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, homophobia is off the menu, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrokovia's national animal is the Vestyal Cave Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vesperism.

Petrokovia is ranked 228,006th in the world and 35th in Cinderia for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
