The Empire of Pendors is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ilan II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.745 billion Pendorsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berden. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pendorsian economy, worth 415 trillion Shekels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,235 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Pendorsians any less frightened, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pendors's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Judaism.

Pendors is ranked 4,407th in the world and 3rd in Thaecia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,054.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
