The Intramarine Realm of Pygania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Daryūsh Jem Trayast with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.923 billion Pyganians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Education and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anquas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pyganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,724 trillion vrigs a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 249,064 vrigs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,416,869 per year while the poor average 21,312, a ratio of 66.5 to 1.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Pygania' is a smash hit, and the rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pygania's national animal is the boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Pygania is ranked 238,083rd in the world and 747th in Europeia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -14.14 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
