The Republic of Piscina is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Leonidas Byron with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and soft-spoken computers.

The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,489 Certainly Not Yerbits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piscina's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
