The Matriarchy of Thepeopl is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Willow Mynah with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.138 billion Thepeoplians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Thepeoplian economy, worth 512 trillion Loves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 163,318 Loves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, the diplomatic corps stinks, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thepeopl's national animal is the Capucin monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thepeopl is ranked 205,508th in the world and 5,879th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 2.73 Obesity Rate.
