The Pie'testant of Kestral Blue is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Pie Eater Frank Kestral with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.782 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faelgroth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Organ donation is compulsory, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kestral Blue's national animal is the Kestral, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Blue Dollar.
