The Colony of Sleazy Pigeon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.868 billion Sleazy Pigeons are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sleazy economy, worth 412 trillion crusts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,106 crusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Sleazy Pigeon in search of pigeons, and pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security. Crime is moderate. Sleazy Pigeon's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sleazy Pigeon is ranked 77,592nd in the world and 1st in Pigeon Axis Force for Most Developed, scoring 58.93 on the Human Development Index.
