The Oppressed Peoples of Plumkin is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 780 million Plumkinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The Plumkinian economy, worth 31.2 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,039 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and Plumkin has designated Plumkin City as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plumkin's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plumkin is ranked 253,461st in the world and 214th in Valley of Peace for Fattest Citizens, with 6.92 Obesity Rate.
