Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.562 billion Pirates live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pirate economy, worth a remarkable 1,573 trillion Clam Shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 183,799 Clam Shells, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 960,639 per year while the poor average 18,898, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

Heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, the nation is so apathetic that Pirates can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Piratical Islanders's national animal is the Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Piratical Islanders is ranked 5,443rd in the world and 231st in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 1,573 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
