The Federal Republic of Pippolandia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.641 billion Pippolandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pippolandian economy, worth 181 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 110,673 lire, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pippolandia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Great Owl.

Pippolandia is ranked 50,464th in the world and 1,526th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,955.62 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
