The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.204 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.

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 Law & Order 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.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Piratical Islanders City Times is sold out, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Piratical Islanders with a very polite populace. 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 56th in The Freed Lands and 109,586th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -1,423.75 Net Tourists per hour.
