The People's Republic of Piasa Paradise is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 835 million Piasa Paradiseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alton. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Piasa Paradisean economy, worth 88.8 trillion Piasoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,341 Piasoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference Leader proudly dismantled a broken door, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime is totally unknown. Piasa Paradise's national animal is the Dinosaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Piasa Paradise is ranked 24,855th in the world and 991st in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 110.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
