The People's Republic of Piznjir is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 759 million Piznjirians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goth City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Piznjirian economy, worth 72.2 trillion pizzies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,107 pizzies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime is totally unknown. Piznjir's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Piznjir is ranked 7,291st in the world and 164th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,799.35 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
