The Republic of The Freedom Loving Pineapples is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.481 billion corporate slaves are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient pineapplesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 trillion Pen-pineapple-apple-pens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,473 Pen-pineapple-apple-pens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 806,050 per year while the poor average 4,134, a ratio of 194 to 1.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", the Great pineapplesian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, and visions of giant pink Dung beetles are a common side effect after corporate slaves eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Freedom Loving Pineapples's national animal is the Dung beetle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Freedom Loving Pineapples is ranked 209,069th in the world and 2nd in The Pale Blue Region for Highest Poor Incomes, with 4,134.97 Standard Monetary Units.
