The Not So Holy Purple Land of Pythaga is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 720 million Pythagans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pythia. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Pythagan economy, worth 94.2 trillion Pyths a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,862 Pyths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, military spending is on the increase, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pythaga's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
