The Free Land of Pytong is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Kamil Iwo with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 932 million Pytongians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kamilowo. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pytongian economy, worth 105 trillion kapustas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,331 kapustas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pytong's national animal is the Goldfinch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pytong is ranked 18,467th in the world and 976th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 65.14 Quips Per Hour.
