The Pies are too hot of D038 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fleegle with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.389 billion Bananas are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Split. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yellow economy, worth 265 trillion Banks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,956 Banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Yellow Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, people who have lived their entire lives in D038 are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, and gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. D038's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is FaLaLahs.

D038 is ranked 13,761st in the world and 11th in Windows for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,191.17 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
