The State of Percyton is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Percy the Small Engine with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 8.384 billion Percytonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tidmouth. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Percytonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,885 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, thousands of former pirates can be found peddling knockoff products in flea markets, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Percyton's national animal is the green caterpillar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Percyton is ranked 1,669th in the world and 8th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 69.67 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
