The Emeritus Augustus Pacificus of Pierconium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ivan Moldavi with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.106 billion Pacificans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stromholde. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pierconiumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,423 trillion Denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 77,898 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pierconium's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the government is a law unto itself, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pierconium's national animal is the Drachul, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moldavism.

Pierconium is ranked 23,196th in the world and 511th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,484.48 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
