LeaderPresident Noxelia


The Constitutional Republic of Ponoxien is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Noxelia with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.221 billion Ponoxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lendentiae. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ponoxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,654 trillion zinestas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,190 zinestas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ponoxien's national animal is the owluma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ponoxien is ranked 235,416th in the world and 122nd in International Democratic Union for Fattest Citizens, with 3.93 Obesity Rate.
