|Faith||The Big Pine|
The Democratic Republic of Pinenses is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Redcats with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.376 billion Pinensesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Pinenses economy, worth 411 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 93,946 genovinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff, Pinensesians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire. 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.
