OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.981 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.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. 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 3,412th in Balder and 112,988th in the world for Best Weather, with -4,697 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
