The Grand Duchy of Plumas is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by BounderTree with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.589 billion Plumasii are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clank Town. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plumasim economy, worth a remarkable 1,594 trillion Crystals a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,291 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Clank Town as a backdrop. Crime is totally unknown. Plumas's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plumas is ranked 3,834th in the world and 226th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.05 Years.
