The Pirates of The Floodcity is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hr Puffin Stuff with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 36.425 billion Floodcityians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West End. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Floodcityian economy, worth a remarkable 2,894 trillion oggie boogies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 79,474 oggie boogies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, and nations that kill a Floodcityian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Floodcity's national animal is the Iron Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fellowship of the Mighty Lords.

The Floodcity is ranked 226,454th in the world and 6,373rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -46.14 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
