OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Sultanate of Pins is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 5.307 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Healthcare and Social Welfare 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 90%, 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.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, only government officials may operate computers, immigrants flood the job queues as discrimination in the workplace makes a staggering comeback, and city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people. 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 2nd in Keglen and 14,410th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 8 Whatever.
