The Honorable Commonwealth of Pekweng is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rodrigo Santillan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.533 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 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pekwengnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,647 trillion Crons a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,734 Crons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the study of medicine is popular throughout Pekweng, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. 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 11,983rd in the world and 304th in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 101 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
