The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Cassandra of Morgan with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.794 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth 758 trillion Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 199,955 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bureaucratic fight over PIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible. 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 Antitheistic-Morganism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 9,189th in the world and 518th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 87.27 Years.
