The Kingdom of Pidg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jackson Overland Frost with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.737 billion Pidgians 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 enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arus. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Pidgian economy, worth 199 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 53,322 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pidg's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pidg is ranked 25,502nd in the world and 16th in Union of Justice for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 193.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
