“In Donie we trust.”

Regional Influence: Squire

The Most Serene Republic of PEPEP is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Great Donie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.814 billion PEPEPians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grobie Junction. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient PEPEPian economy, worth a remarkable 1,156 trillion Staffords a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 198,969 Staffords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Billions of Staffords are spent to take high-quality photos of the Snozzcumber Nebula, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and much of PEPEP's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime is totally unknown. PEPEP's national animal is the Snozzcumber, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
