Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.688 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 1,321 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 171,883 Clam Shells, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 891,394 per year while the poor average 17,957, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Piratical Islanders's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, military spending is on the increase, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and the government is outsourcing itself. 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 3,695th in Balder and 125,439th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -944 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
