The Constitutional Dictatorship of Peatiktist is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mme Boss with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.899 billion Peatiktistians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kurgh. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Peatiktistian economy, worth 549 trillion Peats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,187 Peats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peatiktist's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wheelism.

Peatiktist is ranked 130,057th in the world and 5,063rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.67 on the Rand Index.
