The Principality of Pineapple Juice is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.798 billion Pineapple Juicians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pineappolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pineapple Juician economy, worth a remarkable 2,294 trillion ananas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 337,557 ananas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,628,551 per year while the poor average 40,678, a ratio of 40.0 to 1.

It's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Leader's childhood, being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, public executions just aren't the cheery spectacles they once were, and half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pineapple Juice's national animal is the azure jay, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pineapple Juice is ranked 1,041st in the world and 37th in Lazarus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 815.73 Bank.
