The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.796 billion The Floodcityians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. The average income tax rate is 28%, 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.

All forms of advertising are banned, trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 1,945th in Lazarus and 62,366th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 57 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
