Pirate States of Morgana

Population3.949 billion

LeaderCaptain Ruby Morgan


The Federation of Pirate States of Morgana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Captain Ruby Morgan with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.949 billion Morganians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tortuga. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Morganian economy, worth 641 trillion doubloons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,323 doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-doubloon charge on their phone bill, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Pirate States of Morgana's radio stations, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown. Pirate States of Morgana's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Piracy.

Pirate States of Morgana is ranked 198,165th in the world and 110th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Primitive, scoring -397.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
