The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 15.509 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,036 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,323 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the dartboard at the Pekwengnian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of President Rodrigo Santillan's face, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories. 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 216,078th in the world and 8,798th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -362.46 on the Hayek Index.
