The Republic of Petrolheadia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Daniel Monroney with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.074 billion Petrolheadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Democria. The average income tax rate is 78.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Petrolheadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,257 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 155,743 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and church and state are inseparable in their influence on education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrolheadia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petrolheadia is ranked 73,970th in the world and 2,957th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,658.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
