The Pirates Cove of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Guybrush Threepwood with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.599 billion Tri-Island area inhabitants have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melee Island. The average income tax rate is 74.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkey Islander economy, worth a remarkable 5,614 trillion Stans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,673 Stans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and the government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up. 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 90,671st in the world and 26th in Antarctica for Most Politically Free, scoring 54.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
