The Republic of Pineapple Territory is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Nevets Rodavlas with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 951 million Territoryians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Territoryian economy, worth 117 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,077 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 453,593 per year while the poor average 24,074, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, even snitches get stitches, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Pineapple Territory's national animal is the Buffalo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pineapple Territory is ranked 232,463rd in the world and 1st in The United Territories for Smartest Citizens, with 15.6 quips per hour.
