The Republic of Pierpontia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.211 billion Pierpontians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pierpont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pierpontian economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 trillion shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 120,148 shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,366 per year while the poor average 28,625, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pierpontia's national animal is the honey badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pierpontia is ranked 67,371st in the world and 1,461st in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 160.29116824692 Days.
