The American Pioneer

Population4.421 billion

CapitalPioneer City


The Republic of The American Pioneer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cthulhu with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.421 billion American Pioneerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 831 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 188,155 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

There is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, people say chess victor Cthulhu can kill you with mind-bullets, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and sentient AIs face their watery graves with a fixed smile. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The American Pioneer's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The American Pioneer is ranked 5,873rd in the world and 320th in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 32,981.47 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
