The Parliamentary Democracy of Polouss is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Norman Polk with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.078 billion Poloussians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkhens. The average income tax rate is 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Poloussian economy, worth 100 trillion Yuan a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,177 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, populations of two-headed Zillo Beasts have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, Polouss's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polouss's national animal is the Zillo Beast, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Holy Puremanness.

Polouss is ranked 69,524th in the world and 2nd in Peninsula Point for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 167,270 Standard Monetary Units.
