Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 28.904 billion Floodcityians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Floodcityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,709 trillion oggie boogies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,128 oggie boogies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Floodcityians's kindness, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", Hr Puffin Stuff is worshipped as a god, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Floodcity's national animal is the Iron Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fellowship of the Mighty Lords.

The Floodcity is ranked 47,148th in the world and 1,614th in Osiris for Most Devout, with 564.5 Prayers Per Hour.
