The Commonwealth of Pilgrana is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hortiez Belginelo with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.311 billion Pilgranans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pördoba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The powerhouse Pilgranan economy, worth 140 trillion Pilgs 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 Gambling, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. 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 107,166 Pilgs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 380,676 per year while the poor average 21,741, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Pilgranans any less frightened, and Pilgrana has taken the radical step of electing its future leaders. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pilgrana's national animal is the Hawk.

Pilgrana is ranked 13,376th in the world and 12th in United Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,370.9 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
