The Democratic States of Pillsburg is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, triple-decker prams, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 303 million Pillsburgians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 18.2%.

The all-consuming Pillsburgian economy, worth 28.7 trillion Pills a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 94,667 Pills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown. Pillsburg's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pillsburg is ranked 73,652nd in the world and 4,057th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,324.67 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
