The Queen's State of Strandpiraten is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its burgeoning deer population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.488 billion Strandpiratenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 25.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Strandpiratenian economy, worth 202 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 31,267 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, voting is voluntary, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strandpiraten's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Strandpiraten is ranked 1st in The South Shetland Islands and 62,573rd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 0 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
