OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Sultanate of Pins is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.313 billion Pinsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Social Welfare and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pins City. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and a government program is underway to revitalize Pins's beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Pins's national animal is the Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Golden Moose.

Pins is ranked 1st in Keglen and 1,727th in the world for Best Weather, with 334 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
