Pine Rose

Population10.694 billion


The Queen's State of Pine Rose is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.694 billion Pine Roseans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Pine Rosean economy, worth 323 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 30,263 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 205,756 per year while the poor average 1,626, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pine Rose's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pine Rose is ranked 70,173rd in the world and 4th in Westminster for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
