The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 15.042 billion Pekwengnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,924 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,949 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekweng's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pekweng is ranked 156,368th in the world and 6,795th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.7 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
