The Seagoing Horde of Piratical Islanders is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.477 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.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, cities are engulfed by smog, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. 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 770th in Balder and 21,436th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
