The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.817 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, Social Equality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. The average income tax rate is 22%, 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.

Citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 2,118th in Lazarus and 70,110th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 50 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
