The Commonwealth of Pherttsylvania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dirty Randy with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.723 billion Pherttsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orgrimmar. The average income tax rate is 8.2%.

The all-consuming Pherttsylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,256 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,755 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pherttsylvania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Pherttsylvania is ranked 30,617th in the world and 1,396th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.03 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
