The Earth is pretty cool of Pledonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lukas Gronseth with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.874 billion Pledonians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byta. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pledonian economy, worth 140 trillion Ducals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,825 Ducals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmers often reinvent the wheel, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pledonia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pledonia is ranked 58,805th in the world and 2,434th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 24.21 Atheism Rate.
