The Empire of Pasargad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cyrus with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.599 billion Pasargadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Persepolis. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasargadian economy, worth a remarkable 6,456 trillion Darics a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 218,143 Darics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pasargad's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pasargad is ranked 126,964th in the world and 6,188th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 80.51 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
