The Queendom of Easter Pi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.986 billion Easter Pians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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, the Environment, and Defence. 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.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. 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 16,108th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 14.5 Insults Per Minute (net).
