The Holy Empire of Pogaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Emmanuel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 39.674 billion Pogarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominion. The income tax rate is 100%.
The enormous but underdeveloped Pogarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,481 trillion kosses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 87,759 kosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The law says that all Pogarians are created equal no matter how they were created, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogaria's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Truthism.
