The Republic of Pikachurin is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.57 billion Pikachurinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The thriving Pikachurinian economy, worth 534 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,609 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 216,025 per year while the poor average 17,876, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, teachers are dying as they attempt to read 500 word essays without pausing for breath, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pikachurin's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pikachurin is ranked 191,271st in the world and 3,938th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Poor Incomes, with 17,876.71 Standard Monetary Units.
