The Empire of Picairn is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.621 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 523 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 199,921 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

International trade is a sticky issue, Emperor Menellia I's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 154,641st in the world and 5,721st in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
