The Incorporated States of The Pir is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 322 million Pirians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pir City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pirian economy, worth 38.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 119,502 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 501,629 per year while the poor average 18,505, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Pir's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Pir is ranked 4,930th in the world and 13th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 111,495.87 Standard Monetary Units.
