The Empire of Psikuta is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.35 billion Psikutans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Psikutan economy, worth a remarkable 1,057 trillion Kellers a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 197,575 Kellers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 616,692 per year while the poor average 48,601, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Students do more community service than homework, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Psikuta's national animal is the Pitbull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Psikuta is ranked 36,930th in the world and 840th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 48,601.93 Standard Monetary Units.
