The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.993 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 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 506th in Lazarus and 10,732nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 183 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
