The Empire of David S Pumpkin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by David S Pumpkin with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.249 billion David S Pumpkinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Studio 8H. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The all-consuming David S Pumpkinian economy, worth 425 trillion Frights a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 100,076 Frights, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 334,198 per year while the poor average 22,294, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and DSP-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. David S Pumpkin's national animal is the Skeleton, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Jackolanterns.

David S Pumpkin is ranked 31,843rd in the world and 56th in International Democratic Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 153.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
