The Empire of Pettlland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 12.029 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 1,817 trillion Megs 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 151,062 Megs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 202,446th in the world and 5,961st in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.37 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
