The Island Clusters of Pragmatic Radicals is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by A Democratically Elected Official with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.739 billion Radicals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Radical economy, worth a remarkable 7,836 trillion Tiens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 360,496 Tiens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime is totally unknown. Pragmatic Radicals's national animal is the Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pragmatic Radicals is ranked 14,746th in the world and 1,326th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
