The Greater Imperium of Pikasistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Deathpikachu The First with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless population of 12.546 billion Imperial Pikasistani 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pikapolis. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pikasistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,447 trillion Pikadollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,061 Pikadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pikasistan's national animal is the Pikachu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Creed.

Pikasistan is ranked 30,881st in the world and 1st in Gilgamesh for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.33 Workforce Participation Rate.
