The Union of Pilack is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Chancellor with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.392 billion Pilackians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertalia. The average income tax rate is 12.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pilackian economy, worth 504 trillion Chits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 114,782 Chits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime is totally unknown. Pilack's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pilack is ranked 33,445th in the world and 3rd in The Global Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.21 Workforce Participation Rate.
