The Empire of Picairn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.811 billion Picairnians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormridge. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 581 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,875 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Picairn's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Picairn is ranked 2,799th in the world and 129th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 22,783.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
