Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of The American Pioneer is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Cthulhu with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.465 billion American Pioneerians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pioneer City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient American Pioneerian economy, worth 434 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 176,317 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 740,310 per year while the poor average 27,290, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Proprietary charger leads are now a pain for electric cars as well as cellphones, scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, autocrats are persona non grata, and owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams. 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 154,075th in the world and 7,813th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 4.13 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
