The Pyganicate of Vegetarian States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Brashaan Sardik with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.438 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 Education and Healthcare 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 776 trillion hryvans 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, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 225,733 hryvans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,076,123 per year while the poor average 27,826, a ratio of 38.7 to 1.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and Vegetarian States-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 1,387th in the world and 37th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 10,380.08 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
