Free Las Pinas

Population1.497 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Victor Nikiforov


The Parliamentary Republic of Free Las Pinas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Victor Nikiforov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.497 billion Las Piñeroes 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, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piñeapolis. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Las Piñero economy, worth 191 trillion hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 127,827 hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Las Piñero language, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Free Las Pinas's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Las Pinas is ranked 15,875th in the world and 107th in 10000 Islands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,091.75 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
