The Slightly More Placid Firebal of Kingdom of the Peps is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Anicora Hoppins with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.583 billion KOPians 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 Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KOPingdon. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient KOPish economy, worth 146 trillion KOPish Currencies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,847 KOPish Currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love KOPingdon" t-shirts, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, in a baffling press conference Anicora Hoppins proudly dismantled a broken door, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of the Peps's national animal is the KOPish Thoroughbred Horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Kingdom of the Peps is ranked 19,022nd in the world and 3rd in Grand Peppian Commonwealth for Most Cultured, scoring 87 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
