The Layaqua of Pioneer Pool is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The City Council with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and exploding hoverboards. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.554 billion Layaquene live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lane Pools. The average income tax rate is 34.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Layaq economy, worth 593 trillion Layaq Flimnyas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 167,091 Layaq Flimnyas, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The children of Pioneer Pool are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pioneer Pool's national animal is the Swimming Instructor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Life Guardiasm.

Pioneer Pool is ranked 10,246th in the world and 1st in Bradania for Highest Average Incomes, with 167,091.85 Standard Monetary Units.
