The Grand Duchy of Purgitz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grandduke Michael I with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.008 billion Purgitzians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town of the 14th March 2019. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Purgitzian economy, worth 580 trillion Purgitzer Talers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 192,896 Purgitzer Talers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, t-shirts displaying a photo of Grandduke Michael I performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is totally unknown. Purgitz's national animal is the Black Woodpecker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ecclesia Catholica.

Purgitz is ranked 11,378th in the world and 96th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,215.14 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
