Location: Walmington on Sea

Regional Influence: Eminence Grise


The Principality of Private Pike is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Private Frank Pike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.935 billion Pikeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walmington on Sea. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The strong Private Pikean economy, worth 713 trillion Scarves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 59,779 Scarves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, Stupidboyist has been named as Private Pike's national religion, Private Frank Pike has just been declared ruler of Private Pike in an international press conference, and Private Pike has designated Walmington on Sea as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Private Pike's national animal is the Mum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stupidboyist.

Private Pike is ranked 193,442nd in the world and 6th in Walmington on Sea for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
