The Intecontinental Union of The Greater Portuguese Confederation is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by General Rodrigo Marques with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 850 million Portuguese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth 131 trillion shields a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,146 shields, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Ruff times are ahead for those who aren't keen on party costumes, the teaching of evolution has been banned, maritime signalling has become tedious since only the Portuguese flag can be displayed, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Portuguese Confederation's national animal is the iberian lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Greater Portuguese Confederation is ranked 15,197th in the world and 446th in the Pacific for Most Secular, with 76.62 Atheism Rate.
