The Commonwealth of Penge is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and hatred of cheese. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.986 billion Pengians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penge. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Pengean economy, worth 228 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,778 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
When flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", the standard police uniform now comes with several colours of belt, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penge's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
