The Empire of Picairn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.44 billion Picairnians 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 medium-sized, outspoken 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 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,315 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, even secular Picairnians are shouting "Blessed are the cheesemakers!", the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and the PBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 57,499th in the world and 2,869th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,663.02 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
