The Lonely Hearts Club Band of Sargent Pepper is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.537 billion Sargent Pepperians 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, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PepperLand. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Sargent Pepperian economy, worth 462 trillion All you need is Loves a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,362 All you need is Loves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students cut up leftover All you need is Loves during Arts and Crafts, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, graffiti graces every city's streets, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sargent Pepper's national animal is the Pepper Land Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Brotherhood of Man.

Sargent Pepper is ranked 32,582nd in the world and 1st in Pepperland for Smartest Citizens, with 44.29 Quips Per Hour.
