The Empire of Pettlland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.056 billion Pettllandians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petsmartt. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pettllandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,493 trillion Megs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,550 Megs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, there's a mortuary next to every Pettllandian restaurant, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. Crime is totally unknown. Pettlland's national animal is the Wildcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Pettlland is ranked 3,152nd in the world and 28th in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 20,495 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
