The The Overlords of Utopia of Mr Peckles is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Peckles with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.664 billion Utopia of Mr Pecklesians 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Peckles city. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Utopia of Mr Pecklesian economy, worth 176 trillion Peckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 66,394 Peckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Utopia of Mr Peckles after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and Mr Peckles has just been declared ruler of Utopia of Mr Peckles in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Utopia of Mr Peckles's national animal is the Majestic Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Utopia of Mr Peckles is ranked 27,284th in the world and 15th in Chicken overlords for Most Cultured, scoring 76 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
