Regional Influence: Hermit

Location: The South Shetland Islands


The Republic of Strandpiraten is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its burgeoning eagle population. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.815 billion 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 20%, 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 eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

Strandpiraten is ranked 1st in The South Shetland Islands and 33,857th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 2 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
