The Pluricontinental Union of The Greater Portuguese Confederation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mateus Ramires with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.198 billion Portuguese 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth 580 trillion escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 264,063 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Portuguese Moonshine", there's a mortuary next to every Portuguese restaurant, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest iberian lynx hunting institutions. Crime 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Greater Portuguese Confederation is ranked 30,183rd in the world and 994th in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,240.85 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
