Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Pragmadonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Cutajar with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.813 billion Pragmadonians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praxis. The average income tax rate is 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pragmadonian economy, worth 251 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 138,790 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Euro charge on their phone bill, white-collar unemployment skyrockets as the suburbs are not within bicycling distance to work (Pragmadonia has found 1 easter egg), Pragmadonian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and for 25 Euros tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pragmadonia's national animal is the Griffon.

Pragmadonia is ranked 1,586th in the world and 49th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 37.14 Weapons Per Person.
