The Retired Newsagent of Pendragonania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sturmhauptfüher Cornelia Von Pendragon with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.23 billion Pendragonanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pendragonanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 180,548 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pendragonania's national animal is the Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Pendragonania is ranked 6,746th in the world and 158th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.53 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
