The Republic of Plangainer is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kevin Bradley with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.543 billion Plangainerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Folkhul. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plangainerian economy, worth 532 trillion Plangainerian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,106 Plangainerian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, light entertainment isn't dead, and the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plangainer's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic Christianity.

Plangainer is ranked 28,906th in the world and 1,585th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.07 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
