Regional Influence: Hermit

Location: The South Shetland Islands


The Queen's State of Strandpiraten is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning deer population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.279 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 small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 22%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, voting is voluntary, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is moderate. Strandpiraten's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the betale.

Strandpiraten is ranked 1st in The South Shetland Islands and 43,083rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -14 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
