The People's Republic of The Plebeian States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zaphob Beeblebrox with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.178 billion Plebs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtute Capitis. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Plebeian economy, worth 287 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,095 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, skateparks can be found in every city, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime is totally unknown. The Plebeian States's national animal is the Ox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The Plebeian States is ranked 185,559th in the world and 3,441st in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 40.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
