The GALACTIC EMPIRE of Pigeonstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by CHER AMI with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.217 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pigeonopolis. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pigeononyim economy, worth 906 trillion rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 173,775 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

News headlines suggest that CHER AMI has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, orientation videos remind rookie female politicians that slaps on the bottom are perfectly acceptable forms of communication, and financial investors are noting a boom in artillery. 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 248,817th in the world and 11,350th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8.09 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
