The Fiefdom of Poravor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Duke Trivestat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.125 billion Poravorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enhram. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poravorian economy, worth 150 trillion Krenels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,441 Krenels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poravor's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Poravor is ranked 21,045th in the world and 81st in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,185.54 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
