The Military Superpower of Pinelands Union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chieftain Shamhradháin with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.356 billion Pinelanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chatsworth. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pinelander economy, worth 911 trillion Notes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,169 Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Deer populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the government pours millions of Notes into rehabilitation programs annually, and model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pinelands Union's national animal is the Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Prophetics.

Pinelands Union is ranked 6,733rd in the world and 1st in Townhouse for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,270.37 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
