The Grand Duchy of Pirataria is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.776 billion Piratarians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sjenjak. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piratarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion Paras a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 116,973 Paras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pirataria's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pirataria is ranked 222,616th in the world and 741st in Europeia for Most Extreme, scoring 4.2 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
