The Kingdom of Pekares is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Konig Elbrekt III with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.855 billion Pekaresians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poshep. The average income tax rate is 60.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekaresian economy, worth 728 trillion mutually agreed objects a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 92,681 mutually agreed objects, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and paraplegics are told to walk it off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekares's national animal is the Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pekares is ranked 17,553rd in the world and 11th in The Great Experiment for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.36 Whatever.
