The Empire of Piracema is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Great David with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.559 billion Piracemen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acre. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Piraceman economy, worth 191 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,732 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piracema's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Piracema is ranked 89,804th in the world and 4,434th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
