The Free Land of Pytong is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 491 million Pytongians 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 Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kamilowo. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pytongian economy, worth 46.1 trillion kapustas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 93,793 kapustas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, citizens have never heard foreign radio, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pytong's national animal is the Goldfinch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pytong is ranked 27,721st in the world and 39th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,587.6 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
