The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, aversion to nipples, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, devout population of 15.202 billion Pekwengnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katherinia. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,989 trillion Crons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,861 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Pekweng, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and environmental legislation occurs cyclically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pekweng's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pekweng is ranked 86,480th in the world and 3,801st in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
