The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.458 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Automobile Manufacturing.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, Piratical Islanders recently decided against having a capital city, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, and the government's only official statement on the burning down of Piratical Islanders City was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Piratical Islanders's national animal is the Water Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Violetism, and its currency is the Clam Shell.

Piratical Islanders is ranked 54th in The Freed Lands and 121,937th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0 Stalins.
