The Borderlands of Pyatzvezkie is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 466 million Pyatzvezkieans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The all-consuming Pyatzvezkiean economy, worth 38.0 trillion Government Mandate Noteses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 81,523 Government Mandate Noteses, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Pyatzvezkie City, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Pyatzvezkie's national animal is the Vultures, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Pyatzvezkie is ranked 63,349th in the world and 64th in First World Order for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 179,776 Standard Monetary Units.
