The Republic of Pierogi- is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 206 million Pierogi-ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pierogi-ian economy, worth 11.5 trillion pierógs a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,011 pierógs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, there is a law against "filthy foreign food", and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime is relatively low. Pierogi-'s national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pierogi- is ranked 105,655th in the world and 3,924th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 750.21 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
