The Principality of Maison Saint-Pierre is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Reece Saint-Pierre with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.329 billion Pierrese 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Pierre. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pierrese economy, worth 711 trillion Thalers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,470 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Thaler mansions, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, genetic researchers have been expelled, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maison Saint-Pierre's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Maison Saint-Pierre is ranked 17,142nd in the world and 41st in Thalassia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,633.48 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
