|Leader||The Prelature Pope|
The Catholic Kingdom of Pied Piperlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Prelature Pope with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 33.506 billion Pied Pipers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Spirituality, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flute Centralia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.3%.
The powerhouse Pied Piperlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,021 trillion flutes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,340 flutes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 179,411 per year while the poor average 15,910, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.
Rat sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, concussed ratball players cannot remember their lineup position, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Pied Piperlandia's national animal is the rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
