The Rebel Collective of PYT is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ron Awaei with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.419 billion PYTians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowie. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse PYTian economy, worth 844 trillion flim flams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,670 flim flams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PYT's national animal is the Mercenary Guerilla Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PYT is ranked 13,970th in the world and 247th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,761.26 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
