Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.521 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 1,288 trillion Clam Shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,312 Clam Shells, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,005,331 per year while the poor average 13,636, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 3,654th in Balder and 116,466th in the world for Best Weather, with -379 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
