The Darwinist State of Pyretica is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.836 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.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 24th in Osiris and 1,143rd in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 34 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
