The Matriarchy of Thepeopl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Willow Mynah with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.372 billion Thepeoplians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thepeoplian economy, worth 583 trillion Loves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 172,963 Loves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thepeopl's national animal is the Capucin monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thepeopl is ranked 5,132nd in the world and 151st in the Rejected Realms for Most Secular, with 98.05 Atheism Rate.
