The Commonwealth of Peltonia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mirkin Muffley with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.395 billion Peltonians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brunswick Delight. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peltonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,609 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,591 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Peltonia's national animal is the ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Peltonia is ranked 6,761st in the world and 2nd in The Versutian Federation for Most Influential, scoring 8,684 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
