The Most Serene Republic of PEPEP is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Great Donie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.794 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grobie Junction. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient PEPEPian economy, worth a remarkable 1,752 trillion Yayas 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, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 224,853 Yayas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime is totally unknown. PEPEP's national animal is the Snozzcumber, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

PEPEP is ranked 4,595th in the world and 120th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 224,853.27 Standard Monetary Units.
