The Empire of Picairn is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.459 billion Picairnians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormridge. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 480 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,248 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere, and courtrooms can be a little sketchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Picairn's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Picairn is ranked 230,531st in the world and 8,605th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
