The Sultanate of Pins is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.107 billion Pinsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 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 91%. 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 Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Pins's radio stations, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and the Pins Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament. 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 4th in Keglen and 110,591st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -47 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
