The United Socialist States of Pumpkino is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ashe Dyer with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.171 billion Pumpkinoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pumpkinapolis. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pumpkinoan economy, worth 328 trillion Bananas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,714 Bananas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Bananas are spent to take high-quality photos of the Penguin Nebula, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, Ashe Dyer is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pumpkino's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pie.

Pumpkino is ranked 23,018th in the world and 71st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,966.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
