Location: The North Pacific



Population27.65 billion



The Empire of Pasargad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Cyrus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.65 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, although Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Persepolis. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasargadian economy, worth a remarkable 6,064 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 219,323 Darics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, nothing gets the party jumping like Cyrus specifying how high, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. 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 18,915th in the world and 813th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,469.39 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
