The Federal Plutocracy of Petrovah is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Finnius Wydell with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 12.816 billion Petrovans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiscoll. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Petrovahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Augs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 108,509 Augs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,928 per year while the poor average 24,215, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrovah's national animal is the Pet.

Petrovah is ranked 70,627th in the world and 11th in The Meme Must Go On for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 44.01 Effective Tax Rate.
