The United Kingdom of United Pine-UP is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 300 million Pineish are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 15.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Pineish economy, worth 20.3 trillion Pineish Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 67,722 Pineish Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and foreign football clubs wave the Pineish flag before every game. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Pine-UP's national animal is the Pine Tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

United Pine-UP is ranked 52,338th in the world and 2nd in Planet of Planetaria CS UP cannon for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,677.48 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
