The Queen's State of Pukaskwan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.218 billion Pukaskwanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The strong Pukaskwanian economy, worth 729 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 36,084 betales, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and Pukaskwan is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pukaskwan's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pukaskwan is ranked 143,602nd in the world and 7th in Bonn for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring zero on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
