The Republic of Pelland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Knightley with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.671 billion Pellandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelhambra. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pellish economy, worth 220 trillion Pels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 132,023 Pels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime is totally unknown. Pelland's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pelland is ranked 3,332nd in the world and 80th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 9,757.96 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
