The Republic of Pijonla is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.609 billion Pijonlans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pijonlan economy, worth 90.9 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,853 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Pijonlan basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, Leader's Twitcher account is typically used to share Snake memes rather than government policy, and restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pijonla's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pijonla is ranked 63,542nd in the world and 2,759th in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 416.84 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
