OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Sultanate of Pins is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.43 billion Pinsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 94%, 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 mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, euthanasia is illegal, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, and eminent domain has been abolished. 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 6th in Keglen and 109,688th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 7 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
