The Republic of Penuryzstan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.948 billion Penuryzstanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The minute, corrupt, socially-minded government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Social Policy, with Environment also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Education aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 2.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Penuryzstanian economy, worth 581 billion scarce pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 298 scarce pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Penuryzstanian language, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, pre-eclampsia in pregnancy is treated with encouragement to take "long soothing walks", and weather reports simply advise Penuryzstanians to 'look outside'. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Penuryzstan's national animal is the church mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Penuryzstan is ranked 268,489th in the world and 13th in Stanistan for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -16.43 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
