OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.017 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyretica City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Pyretica's national animal is the untermensch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the SEK.

Pyretica is ranked 2nd in Lazarus and 35th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 37 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
