OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.028 billion Pyreticans 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 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.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 1st in Balder and 71st in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 27 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
