Location: New Europe

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Republic of Pieuvre is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pelasgo Illyric with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 23.143 billion Pieuvrais 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cephalopod. The average income tax rate is 71.1%.

The strong Pieuvrais economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 trillion dubloons a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 72,907 dubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pieuvre's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Bull God Worship.

Pieuvre is ranked 128,669th in the world and 57th in New Europe for Most Income Equality, scoring 28.85 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
