The Federal Republic of Plankstein is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 391 million Planksteins 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Offingen. The average income tax rate is 28.3%.

The powerhouse Planksteinian economy, worth 28.5 trillion kronens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 73,001 kronens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, Plankstein's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, economists claim no news is good news, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plankstein's national animal is the meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Plankstein is ranked 83,599th in the world and 2,926th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,033.82 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
