The Pirate Republic of The Great Black Flag is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Monkey D Luffy with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.256 billion Pirates are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morganza. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piratical economy, worth 169 trillion Doubloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 135,244 Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to The Great Black Flag's border, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, and a revolving door was recently installed at the entrance of the Piratical Capitol Building. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Great Black Flag's national animal is the Great Black Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Great Black Flag is ranked 46,098th in the world and 534th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 623.2 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
