The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.057 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.

Voting is voluntary, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots. 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 43rd in The Freed Lands and 111,105th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0 Stalins.
