The Holy Zombie Koala of Porflox is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Creativity with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.323 billion Porfloxians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porflox City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth 287 trillion Zombies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 217,495 Zombies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 850,901 per year while the poor average 37,872, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, Emperor Creativity can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, and the latest superhero movie features a caped Bat with adamantium claws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porflox's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Porflox is ranked 7,811th in the world and 151st in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 91.67 on the Human Development Index.
