The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Cassandra of Morgan with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.109 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth 838 trillion Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 204,158 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback Crow is only seen in captivity programs, governments opposing Greater Pittsburgh are beset by rebels, Pittsburghers refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts. 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 5,950th in the world and 359th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.08 on the Human Development Index.
