The Empire of Picairn is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.655 billion Picairnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormridge. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 532 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 200,598 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government funds large training centres to turn Phoenixes into functioning members of society, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, Emperor Menellia I has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, and the Picairnian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Picairn's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Picairn is ranked 4,240th in the world and 235th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 42.99 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
