This is a summary of the Pirate Movement as it was at the end of 2012. Latest count on Pirate Parties in the world during 2012 = 63 Pirate Parties (registered 22, active 24, low activity 14, conflicting parties 3).

The Pirate Movement is growing. This world map was created at the end of 2012 to give an overview on the pirate movement. As can be seen from the map, the Pirate Movement is still fairly euro-centric but steadily spreading out. Australia just managed to get registered as an official party and there is a lot of activity brewing in South America.

Currently there are more than 600.000 people following pirate parties around the world. More basic information about different pirate parties (website, fb, twitter, contact) can be found by clicking on the countries in the map. All this information and some other parts will be released in the form of an API on Pirate Times in the near future.
