The Dictatorship of The Union of Pragmatica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Controller Longpig with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 10.361 billion Prags have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dujoloaf City. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pragmatic economy, worth a remarkable 1,588 trillion Prysms 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 153,313 Prysms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All you have to do is pray to get into The Union of Pragmatica, self-driving cars have been banned, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Union of Pragmatica's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Seekers of the Squirrel.

The Union of Pragmatica is ranked 9,970th in the world and 11th in Artificial Solar System for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,865.86 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
