The Free Land of Pernutia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zaki Zambleblot with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, enslaved workforce, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.559 billion Pernutians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarma. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pernutian economy, worth 331 trillion Milals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 93,132 Milals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Eagle, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', and nobody knows why the caged Eagle sings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pernutia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Barnabism.

Pernutia is ranked 167,172nd in the world and 6,934th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 42 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
