The Holy Empire of The Order Of The Holy Pineapple is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 121 million Pineappleists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The thriving Pineappleist economy, worth 8.56 trillion Pineapples a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 70,751 Pineapples, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 318,740 per year while the poor average 9,679, a ratio of 32.9 to 1.

The Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, military spending is on the increase, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Order Of The Holy Pineapple's national animal is the Wild Pineapple, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Order Of The Holy Pineapple is ranked 126,952nd in the world and 4,374th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
