The Federal People's Republic of Pirusavia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Vartanshahir with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The cynical population of 964 million Pirusavians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mervats. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pirusavian economy, worth 124 trillion perunas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,898 perunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Pirusavian lands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pirusavia's national animal is the marten, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Pirusavia is ranked 187,770th in the world and 314th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
