The Republic of Peabodia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 267 million Peabodians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwood. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Peabodian economy, worth 20.5 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 76,907 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peabodia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Peabodia is ranked 10,436th in the world and 23rd in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 109.49 Insults Per Minute.
