The Free Land of Psuke is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 5.529 billion Psukeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psuke City. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psukean economy, worth a remarkable 1,261 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 228,221 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, an iron curtain has descended around the nation, tabloids coo over Leader's expected child, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown. Psuke's national animal is the Sturgeon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Psuke is ranked 2,089th in the world and 100th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 97.66 on the Human Development Index.
