The GALACTIC EMPIRE of Pigeonstan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by CHER AMI with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.8 billion Pigeons 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 Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pigeontropolis. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pigeononyim economy, worth 260 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 144,691 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, Pigeonstan recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pigeonstan's national animal is the Pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is PIJONIEALISIM.

Pigeonstan is ranked 32,181st in the world and 1,645th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,035.77 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
