The Empire of Picairn is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.966 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 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 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 356 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 181,483 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Picairn has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. 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 13,886th in the world and 718th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,795.86 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
