The Kingdom of Pendors is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Ilan II with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 949 million Pendorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berden. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pendorsian economy, worth 106 trillion Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 112,213 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany King Ilan II to meetings with foreign heads of state, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pendors's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pendors is ranked 9,275th in the world and 23rd in Thaecia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,374.68 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
