The Empire of Pasargad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Cyrus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.015 billion Pasargadians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Persepolis. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasargadian economy, worth a remarkable 6,483 trillion Darics a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 216,001 Darics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pasargad's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pasargad is ranked 211,273rd in the world and 9,567th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -181.57 on the Hayek Index.
