The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.327 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,632 trillion Crons a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,463 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. 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 149,838th in the world and 6,085th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.3 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
