The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria of Morganstar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.734 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 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 1,348 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. Average income is an amazing 235,237 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vaccinations are mandatory, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and the 'maybe not shock and awe' foreign policy initiative is showing promise. 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 118,395th in the world and 5,241st in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 41.89 on the Rand Index.
