The Federal Republic of Pitkok is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Filippo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 1.304 billion Pitkokians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Videssos. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pitkokian economy, worth 155 trillion Pitkokian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,068 Pitkokian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, builders across Pitkok are blocked up with orders for new public loos, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Pitkok. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pitkok's national animal is the Megalodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Pitkok is ranked 20,289th in the world and 1,107th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
