The Matriarchy of Thepeopl is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 1.378 billion Thepeoplians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thepeoplian economy, worth 173 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, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 125,861 Loves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Capucin monkey, nobody knows why the caged Capucin monkey sings, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 7,924th in the world and 178th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 121 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
