The Great Empire of Pigeonstan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 597 million Pigeons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pigeontropolis. The average income tax rate is 49.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pigeononyim economy, worth 71.0 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,011 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Pigeonstan to be bombproof, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pigeonstan's national animal is the Pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Pigeonstan is ranked 13,728th in the world and 664th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
