The Rebel Ghettino of PYT is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ron Awaei with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.397 billion PYTians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowie. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving PYTian economy, worth 592 trillion flim flams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,105 flim flams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PYT's national animal is the Mercenary Guerilla Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PYT is ranked 202,701st in the world and 2,035th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -15.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
