OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Sultanate of Pins is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.899 billion Pinsians 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 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%, 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.

Street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, protests are legal but strictly supervised, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 2,521st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 43 on the Enoch Index.
