The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 16.881 billion Pekwengnians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,353 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,444 Crons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pekwengnian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 234,553rd in the world and 8,118th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.88 Obesity Rate.
