The Kingdom of The United Pirate Cities of Flotilla is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Imtura Tal Kaelen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.623 billion Pirates are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flotilla. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flotillan economy, worth 397 trillion galleons 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. 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 amazing 245,003 galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', Flotillan athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, the government funds large training centres to turn Krakens into functioning members of society, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in The United Pirate Cities of Flotilla. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The United Pirate Cities of Flotilla's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

The United Pirate Cities of Flotilla is ranked 11,321st in the world and 379th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,214.98 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
