The Dominion of Piethrixia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jacobus Ade Reitsma with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.354 billion Piethrixians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piethrixian economy, worth 423 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, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,318 Piethrixian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piethrixia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Piethrixia is ranked 158,677th in the world and 64th in Cynosure for Fattest Citizens, with 6.4 Obesity Rate.
