Piggy Island is an island and a country which is the home of the Angry Birds and Bad Piggies. It is also the environment that they live in, and it is the main location. The exact location of Piggy Island is a mystery, but Rovio claims that it has been designed to reflect elements of just about every location in the real world. The creation of Piggy Island was claimed to be a vital step in the expansion of the brand. The games originally gave a small glimpse at the world, but afterward, Piggy Island was revealed just bit by bit. For example, at the end of the Christmas Comic, a small glimpse of Piggy Island is seen. Then, in the Vuela Tazos Advertisement, the birds clearly were on the beach of Piggy Island. As time passed, more and more was revealed bit by bit. It is ruled by King Pig, as King of Piggy Island. An absolute monarchy, its capital is Pig City - the most populated area of the island; and inhabited by thousands of pigs. It is also known to have an air force, a naval vessel, a police force, and an army, headed by Corporal Pig. In Mind The Pony, a judicial system was also seen, which includes Chronicler Pig. There is also a church on the island that holds services for religious pigs.
