LeaderHer Majesty Wait This is a Democracy


The Ghost Town of Pianaville is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Her Majesty Wait This is a Democracy with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 971 million Pianavilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pivela. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pianavillean economy, worth 115 trillion pians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,326 pians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Her Majesty Wait This is a Democracy wears a chewed-up rubber chicken suit to meet foreign delegates, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pianaville's national animal is the monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pianaville is ranked 11,140th in the world and 241st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
