Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Pilgrana is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 772 million 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Public Transport, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pördoba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The all-consuming Pilgranan economy, worth 76.6 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 Basket Weaving. 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 99,238 Pilgs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 358,869 per year while the poor average 19,584, a ratio of 18.3 to 1.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work, tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. 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, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Pilgrana is ranked 145,672nd in the world and 247th in United Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -38.67 on the Rand Index.
