|Leader||Emperor Menellia I|
The Empire of Picairn is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 798 million Picairnians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormridge. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 115 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,474 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, and to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Picairn's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
