The Grand Duchy of Black pinewood is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand duke Vyliautas I with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 7.29 billion Black pinewoodians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vyliautopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Black pinewoodian economy, worth 992 trillion Litais a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,118 Litais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and foreign despots proudly bandstand on Black pinewoodian airwaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black pinewood's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Black pinewood is ranked 215,250th in the world and 4th in The Monarchist World League for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.61 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
