The Democratic States of Piano atoll is a huge, genial nation, notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 324 million Pianians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vestris Island. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pianian economy, worth 19.7 trillion Crab dollaridoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 60,749 Crab dollaridoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, much of Piano atoll's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, recognizing the Pianian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Piano atoll's national animal is the Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Piano atoll is ranked 82,989th in the world and 739th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 20.73 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
