Pineapple Juice

The Principality of Pineapple Juice is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.967 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pineappolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pineapple Juician economy, worth a remarkable 1,674 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 337,146 ananas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,687,411 per year while the poor average 37,833, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

The nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. 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 56,353rd in the world and 1st in Union of the Kind Ones for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.44 on the Rand Index.
