The Empire of Peanu-Butteria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ralph the Nutter with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.257 billion Peanu-Butterians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borbagne. The average income tax rate is 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Peanu-Butterian economy, worth 631 trillion Vietzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 280,005 Vietzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Peanu-Butteria's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Erglism.

Peanu-Butteria is ranked 5,859th in the world and 8th in Confederacy of Layem for Most Developed, scoring 93.2 on the Human Development Index.
