The Democratic Republic of Pogthebravelandia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Pog with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.98 billion Pogthebravelandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogtropolis. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pogthebravelandian economy, worth 824 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,600 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogthebravelandia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pogthebravelandia is ranked 266,435th in the world and 1,291st in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -25.59 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
