The United Districts of Pidg is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harold Finch with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.305 billion Pidgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arus. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pidgian economy, worth 417 trillion Quid a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,662 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Arus, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime is totally unknown. Pidg's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pidg is ranked 132,956th in the world and 35th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
