The Rainy Skies of PKthunder is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.665 billion PKthunderians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 29.8%.

The very strong PKthunderian economy, worth 208 trillion pixels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,225 pixels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as PKthunderian humor gets, a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and nobody ever questions the unquestioned rule that questions must always be asked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PKthunder's national animal is the house cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PKthunder is ranked 183,734th in the world and 10th in PK of rthbnd for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.22 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
