The Commonwealth of Pianolandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fortepiano with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.105 billion Pianists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pianoville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The powerhouse Pianolandian economy, worth 111 trillion Pianos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 100,453 Pianos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 372,661 per year while the poor average 19,046, a ratio of 19.6 to 1.

The fattest folk in Pianolandia look to be the happiest ones, the police insist that racism does not exist, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pianolandia's national animal is the Three-legged Piano, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pianism.

Pianolandia is ranked 26,928th in the world and 27th in Geopolity for Most Influential, scoring 1,171 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
