The Queendom of Easter Pi is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.094 billion Easter Pians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Easter Pi City. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', euthanasia is illegal, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Easter Pi's national animal is the Ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Paper Frog.

Easter Pi is ranked 1st in Elutraea and 110,659th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -5 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
