The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria of Morganstar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.194 billion Pittsburghers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 1,423 trillion Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 229,881 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tuxedo rental companies are inexplicably going out of business, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the Army mostly consists of colonial subjects, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Pittsburgh's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Antitheistic-Morganism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 12,332nd in the world and 516th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,493.73 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
