The Holy People's Red Republic of Pengasas is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, flagrant waste-dumping, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.462 billion Pengasasians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pilah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pengasasian economy, worth 251 trillion golds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 171,734 golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,557,394 per year while the poor average 2,213, a ratio of 703 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and women tell their friends they've been on crash diets rather than admit they were pregnant and have had terminations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pengasas's national animal is the bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Pengasas is ranked 126,167th in the world and 1st in DGO for Most Developed, scoring 54.81 on the Human Development Index.
