The Republic of Penrith is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Ribboneh with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 956 million Penrithians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinsley. The average income tax rate is 19.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Penrithian economy, worth 154 trillion Penrith Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,916 Penrith Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Ribboneh's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, helicopter parenting is on the rise, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Penrith's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Penrith is ranked 1,572nd in the world and 86th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 25,514 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
