The Pirates Cove of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Guybrush Threepwood with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 33.712 billion Tri-Island area inhabitants are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melee Island. The average income tax rate is 82.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkey Islander economy, worth a remarkable 7,156 trillion Stans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,273 Stans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for Piedra Negra in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piedra Negra's national animal is the Ghost Pirate Lechuck, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scallywag.

Piedra Negra is ranked 12,332nd in the world and 10th in Antarctica for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 82.37 Effective Tax Rate.
