The Pyganicate of Vegetarian States is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Brashaan Sardik with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.016 billion Pyganians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rodozny. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pyganic economy, worth 674 trillion hryvans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 223,731 hryvans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,066,576 per year while the poor average 27,579, a ratio of 38.7 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, aides are afraid to ask if Brashaan Sardik wants a cup of tea or coffee, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Japanese macaques and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Vegetarian States's national animal is the Japanese macaque, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Pyganism.

Vegetarian States is ranked 180,247th in the world and 9,907th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -34.64 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
