The Empire of Picairn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.648 billion Picairnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 531 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 amazing 200,663 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Picairn, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. 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 233,408th in the world and 9,436th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.71 Obesity Rate.
