The American Pioneer

Population3.713 billion

CapitalPioneer City


The Republic of The American Pioneer is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cthulhu with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.713 billion American Pioneerians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pioneer City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient American Pioneerian economy, worth 689 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 185,573 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and many former slaves are finding out there is such a thing as a free lunch. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The American Pioneer's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The American Pioneer is ranked 59,981st in the world and 3,123rd in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 41.45 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
