The Congrats Delegoose of Pledonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lukas Gronseth with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.54 billion Pledonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byta. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pledonian economy, worth 118 trillion Ducals a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,704 Ducals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the government pours millions of Ducals into rehabilitation programs annually, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and edutainment video games are taking Pledonia's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pledonia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pledonia is ranked 179,653rd in the world and 3,441st in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 51.0 billion Standard Monetary Units.
