The Holy Imperial Commonwealth of Pillowlandia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Majesty of House Johgs with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.243 billion Pillowlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emain Ablach. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pillowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion pillowmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,129 pillowmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, Pillowlandia's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, the government spends billions to protect Pillowlandia from a disaster that is one in a million, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pillowlandia's national animal is the Pillow Pet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cenaesian Druidism.

Pillowlandia is ranked 141,091st in the world and 7th in The Democratic Commonwealth for Most Armed, with 0.2 Weapons Per Person.
