The Not So Holy Purple Land of Pythaga is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 702 million Pythagans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pythia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pythagan economy, worth 93.1 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 132,631 Pyths, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, Pythaga is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42. 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.

Pythaga is ranked 29,075th in the world and 32nd in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.56 on the Rand Index.
