The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.607 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.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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 3,158th in Lazarus and 112,071st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -38 on the Hayek Index.
