Pius Desurongcrandis

Population4.925 billion

LeaderChancellor Jeb Bartlett


The Chat 'n Chew of Pius Desurongcrandis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Jeb Bartlett with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.925 billion Pieseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fennex. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piesian economy, worth 687 trillion Pibucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,671 Pibucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Phoenixdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pius Desurongcrandis's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Phoenixism.

Pius Desurongcrandis is ranked 158,283rd in the world and 30th in Region Name for Most Politically Free, scoring 48 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
