The Republic of Pydrus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jupiter Gaius Flavius Valerius Aurelius with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 1.363 billion Pydrusians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kios. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pydrusian economy, worth 115 trillion drachmas a year, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,479 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and a major religion has been named as Pydrus's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pydrus's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pydrus is ranked 196,056th in the world and 898th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -44.22 on the Hayek Index.
