The Free Land of Pie Dude is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pie Dude The Kind Overlord with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 2.041 billion Pie Dudeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pie Dude Amusement Park. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pie Dudean economy, worth 160 trillion Pies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,793 Pies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pie Dude's national animal is the Pie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pieism.

Pie Dude is ranked 37,340th in the world and 1st in PieTopia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 128.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
