The Not So Holy Purple Land of Pythaga is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 751 million Pythagans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pythia. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pythagan economy, worth 100 trillion Pyths a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,368 Pyths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Pythia, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pythaga's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pythaga is ranked 152,975th in the world and 285th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -1.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
