The Republic of Plangainer is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kevin Bradley with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.557 billion Plangainerians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orley. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plangainerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 trillion Plangainerian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,793 Plangainerian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All you have to do is pray to get into Plangainer, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and when you fly on Air Plangainer you win a seat or you die. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plangainer's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plangainer is ranked 6,873rd in the world and 232nd in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 9,573.26 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
