Pius Desurongcrandis

Population3.541 billion

LeaderKing Pius XXIX


The Sovereign Nation of Pius Desurongcrandis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Pius XXIX with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.541 billion Pieseans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fennex. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piesian economy, worth 508 trillion Pibucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 143,508 Pibucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Pibuck battlesuits, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pius Desurongcrandis's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Peanutism.

Pius Desurongcrandis is ranked 15,028th in the world and 2nd in Region Name for Highest Average Incomes, with 143,508.11 Standard Monetary Units.
