Population7.357 billion

LeaderEmpress Cassandria of Morganstar

CurrencyGolden Morgan Dollar

The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria of Morganstar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.357 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 1,605 trillion Golden Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 218,231 Golden Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. 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 Violetism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 10,259th in the world and 578th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,594.89 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
