The Noocratic Republic of Mally Piznoopia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Zeno of Citium with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 865 million freethinkers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Piznoopian economy, worth 118 trillion Pizns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 136,792 Pizns, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and nose plugs are the latest Piznoopian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mally Piznoopia's national animal is the Great Blue Heron, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mally Piznoopia is ranked 18,234th in the world and 50th in The Free Nations Region for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.25 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
