The Empire of Pasargad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Cyrus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 27.073 billion Pasargadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Persepolis. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasargadian economy, worth a remarkable 5,901 trillion Darics a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,979 Darics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pasargad's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pasargad is ranked 50,292nd in the world and 3,201st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
