The Confederal Alliance of Pilarcraft is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Triumvirate with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-working, cheerful population of 5.03 billion Pilartics have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bopindar. The average income tax rate is 7.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pilartic economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion Pilartic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 230,369 Pilartic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, nobody brings rolls of coins to the laundromat anymore, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pilarcraft's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Stofdoten.

Pilarcraft is ranked 66,289th in the world and 1st in The PrimeWorld for Most Pro-Market, scoring 50.89 on the Rand Index.
