The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 30.546 billion Floodcityians 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 minute 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 all-consuming Floodcityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,996 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 65,366 oggie boogies, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, a lack of funding for new shows has turned television into 24/7 re-runs, for 25 oggie boogies tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. 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 21,085th in the world and 965th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 198.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
