The Democratic Republic of Pinenses is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Redcats with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.833 billion Pinensesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pinus Superanum. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pinenses economy, worth 671 trillion genovinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 98,346 genovinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-genovino mansions, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Pinenses's national animal is the Quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Big Pine.

Pinenses is ranked 19,845th in the world and 311th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,272 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
