The Popular Mark of Pinicada is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marquês dos Pinicadas José dos Santos I with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.001 billion Pinicadas enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penico. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pinicada economy, worth 246 trillion Bonias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 123,254 Bonias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Penico, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, much of Pinicada's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pinicada's national animal is the Gato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pinicada is ranked 196,117th in the world and 10th in Hablos for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.45 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
