The Greater Imperium of Pikasistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Deathpikachu The First with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical, humorless population of 15.134 billion Imperial Pikasistani are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pikapolis. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pikasistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,923 trillion Pikadollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,191 Pikadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, the internet has been placed under government control, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pikasistan's national animal is the Pikachu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Creed.

Pikasistan is ranked 208,736th in the world and 1st in Gilgamesh for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -145 on the Hayek Index.
