The Commonwealth of Pherttsylvania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dirty Randy with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.102 billion Pherttsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orgrimmar. The average income tax rate is 5.1%.

The all-consuming Pherttsylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,069 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 96,302 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pherttsylvania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Pherttsylvania is ranked 2,314th in the world and 51st in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 66 Valid Endorsements.
