The Emeritus Augustus Pacificus of Pierconium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ivan Moldavi with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.255 billion Pacificans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stromholde. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pierconiumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,174 trillion Denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 76,964 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pierconium's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the government is a law unto itself, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pierconium's national animal is the Drachul, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moldavism.

Pierconium is ranked 216,980th in the world and 5,721st in the Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
