The Dominion of Piethrixia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jacobus Ade Reitsma with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.203 billion Piethrixians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vers. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piethrixian economy, worth 382 trillion Piethrixian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,520 Piethrixian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piethrixia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Piethrixia is ranked 18,300th in the world and 5th in Cynosure for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,229.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
