The Grand Duchy of Percset is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Liang Ming with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.137 billion Percsetians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Percset-Zhaozhou. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The strong Percsetian economy, worth 60.9 trillion Lotuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 53,576 Lotuses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 322,908 per year while the poor average 3,998, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, surveillance cameras are banned, Percset has designated Percset-Zhaozhou as its capital city, and Grand Duke Liang Ming has just been declared ruler of Percset in an international press conference. Crime is a serious problem. Percset's national animal is the Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Percset is ranked 9,891st in the world and 4th in The Everlasting Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,822.23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
