The Tropical Refreshments of Free Las Pinas is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.887 billion Pinjins 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xansen. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Pinji economy, worth 658 trillion Intergalactic Standard Units 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 169,478 Intergalactic Standard Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime is totally unknown. Free Las Pinas's national animal is the Blue-striped Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Las Pinas is ranked 299,960th in the world and 999th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.04 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
