The Great Empire of Pigeonstan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 610 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 Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pigeontropolis. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pigeononyim economy, worth 74.2 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,661 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, nudity is frowned upon, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 60,519th in the world and 2,231st in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 11.77 Obesity Rate.
