The Federal Republic of PIDLE is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 689 million Icsadas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napriyed. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Icsadan economy, worth 82.0 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 118,942 credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.
Many former slaves are finding out there is such a thing as a free lunch, gun-wielding gangsters sometimes deal death from as far as ten paces away, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PIDLE's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
