The Holy Empire of Tyrannical Porcupines United is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Supreme Porcupine with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 2.421 billion Porcupines 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porcupine City. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Porcupinian economy, worth 190 trillion Deskers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 78,820 Deskers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Supreme Porcupine is generally seen as a know-it-all (Tyrannical Porcupines United has found 1 easter egg), there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tyrannical Porcupines United's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jeff Goldblum.

Tyrannical Porcupines United is ranked 34,189th in the world and 57th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,074.56 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
