The Commonwealth of Pg40 is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 112 million Pg40ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 35.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pg40ian economy, worth 5.52 trillion pixels a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,305 pixels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pg40's national animal is the house cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Pg40 is ranked 15,487th in the world and 5th in Bk of llsns for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,300.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
