The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.508 billion The Floodcityians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, international tensions are high as The Floodcity threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Floodcity's national animal is the Iron Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Fellowship of the Mighty Lords, and its currency is the oggie boogie.

The Floodcity is ranked 32nd in Lazarus and 759th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,318 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
