The Federation of Pendelk is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.344 billion Pendelkians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 38.5%.

The strong Pendelkian economy, worth 106 trillion Pends a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,052 Pends, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Water fights now end with thousands dead, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, and Leader is the self-declared God of all Pendelk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pendelk's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pendelk is ranked 43,464th in the world and 1,219th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,918.57 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
