The Incorporated States of Pinelia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Theus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.338 billion Pinelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clotilda. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pinelian economy, worth 102 trillion Wabecks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,813 Wabecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Pinelia's national animal is the Coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pinelia is ranked 4,140th in the world and 62nd in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
