OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.965 billion Pyreticans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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.

Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 2,678th in Balder and 94,526th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 31 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
