The Commonwealth of Pigeonstan is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 438 million 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pigeontropolis. The average income tax rate is 55.5%.

The powerhouse Pigeononyim economy, worth 45.7 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 104,369 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Theoretical science is only theoretical, robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. 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.

Pigeonstan is ranked 29,847th in the world and 1,389th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 104,369.89 Standard Monetary Units.
