The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Albert Gallatin with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 22.238 billion Plisskenstanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Plisskenstanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,163 trillion Sponks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 187,209 Sponks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Plisskenstan is ranked 3,472nd in the world and 30th in Capitalist Paradise for Smartest Citizens, with 129.74 Quips Per Hour.
