|Leader||Emperor Menellia I|
The Empire of Picairn is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Menellia I with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 996 million Picairnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken 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 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Picairnian economy, worth 152 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,935 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and tabloids coo over Emperor Menellia I's expected child. 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.
