The Bretonia Founder of Compassionate Sackers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by CoolDude with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.175 billion Compassionate Sackersians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HomeCity. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Compassionate Sackersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,075 trillion Pineapples a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,174 Pineapples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Compassionate Sackers's many privately-owned prisons, loans are available for students from poor families, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Compassionate Sackers's national animal is the Bird of Paradise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Compassionate Sackers is ranked 143,360th in the world and 1st in Bretonia for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
