The Rebel Collective of PYT is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ron Awaei with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.113 billion PYTians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse PYTian economy, worth 795 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 87,305 flim flams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, Ron Awaei is considering changing the PYTian flag to one with more glitter, any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. 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 28,803rd in the world and 390th in 10000 Islands for Most Secular, with 38.56 Atheism Rate.
