The Community of PKgroove is a huge, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and public floggings. The cynical population of 376 million PKgrooveans 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 prioritizes Law & Order, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong PKgroovean economy, worth 19.7 trillion pixels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,520 pixels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and father-son fishing trips have been banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PKgroove's national animal is the house cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

PKgroove is ranked 112,407th in the world and 9th in PK of rthbnd for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
