The Cunning Plan of Sichuan Pepper is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Wordy with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.836 billion Pepperians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepper Pot City. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sichuan Pepperian economy, worth 575 trillion Peppers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 73,443 Peppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sichuan Pepper's national animal is the Clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Desu.

Sichuan Pepper is ranked 31,125th in the world and 139th in Yggdrasil for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.28 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
