The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, digital currency, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 16.434 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,269 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 138,116 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, extreme political groups are outlawed, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 119,353rd in the world and 2,045th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 300 billion Standard Monetary Units.
