The Dominion of Piethrixia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Admiral Jacob Daniels with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.699 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 59.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Piethrixian economy, worth 478 trillion Piethrixian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 129,244 Piethrixian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Families are only permitted to have one child, it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 59,540th in the world and 30th in Cynosure for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 71.29 Workforce Participation Rate.
