The People's Republic of Pyrantium is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 104 million Pyrantines are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
The large, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Pyrantine economy, worth 3.61 trillion Luces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,709 Luces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", the crispy fried liver of a phoenix is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pyrantium's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
