The United States of Pragmatiland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 425 million Pragmatilandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.
The thriving Pragmatilandian economy, worth 31.7 trillion Coffee Beans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,703 Coffee Beans, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the tenet of free speech is held dear, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pragmatiland's national animal is the Ted Nugent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
