The Principality of Pichtonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 9.157 billion Pichtos enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pridetown. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but sluggish Pichto economy, worth 220 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,087 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Peanuts each year, CEOs are forced to cut coupons during important conference calls to make ends meet, this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pichtonia's national animal is the Fairy, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Brewdaism.
