The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 15.029 billion Pekwengnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,922 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,949 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekweng's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pekweng is ranked 4,830th in the world and 130th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 109.56 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
