The United States of Pichu23 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aidan with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 4.916 billion Pichu23ians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pichu23 City. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pichu23ian economy, worth 268 trillion lolcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 54,682 lolcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Pichu23, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, the well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pichu23's national animal is the ambulance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pichu23 is ranked 78,371st in the world and 1,631st in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 268 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
