The Slice of Paradise of Pizza Republica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Maria Pia La Pizza with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.581 billion Pizza Republicans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pisa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pizza Republican economy, worth 147 trillion pepperonis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 93,465 pepperonis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 488,504 per year while the poor average 9,610, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, the nation leads Osiris for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pizza Republica's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pizza Republica is ranked 123,829th in the world and 5,015th in Osiris for Largest Populations, with 1.58 billion Capita.
