The Democratic Republic of Pinenses is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Redcats with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.56 billion Pinensesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pinus Superanum. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pinenses economy, worth 430 trillion genovinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 94,497 genovinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Pinus Superanum for fear of causing a fuss, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is totally unknown. Pinenses's national animal is the Quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Big Pine.

Pinenses is ranked 125,888th in the world and 809th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,274.61 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
