OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 7.262 billion Pyrokians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Equality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merako. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The new prison system is crowding up at an alarming rate, most citizens in Hardened Pyrokinetics are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hardened Pyrokinetics's national animal is the Fire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Grand Church of the Holy Flames, and its currency is the Fire Dollar.

Hardened Pyrokinetics is ranked 4th in Ankh Mauta and 1,385th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 217 Dawkins.
