The Empire of Picairn is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.445 billion Picairnians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 474 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 194,099 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends billions to protect Picairn from a disaster that is one in a million, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders. 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 8,016th in the world and 466th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 244 Meters Of Sunlight.
