The Democratic Republic of Petrolandia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by August Grifften with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 8.836 billion PETRONIANS are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrovia. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Petrolandian economy, worth 806 trillion PTRS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,268 PTRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, and there's a hole in the heart of every Petrolandian city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrolandia's national animal is the Prince Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic Church.

Petrolandia is ranked 238,379th in the world and 3rd in Unionist Democratic Republics Alliance for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
