The Republic of Plakkia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aperq Schunoval with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.076 billion Plakkians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tunta. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Plakkian economy, worth 205 trillion korunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 98,802 korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax korunas each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plakkia's national animal is the alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plakkia is ranked 96,825th in the world and 33rd in Deutschland for Most Beautiful Environments, with 559.22 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
