The Nomadic Peoples of Punkarchie is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Malatesta with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.674 billion Punkachiens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tsiganes economy, worth 291 trillion lices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 108,831 lices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Punkarchie City, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Punkarchie's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Paganism.

Punkarchie is ranked 5,094th in the world and 13th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Inclusive, scoring 220.6 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
