The Democratic People's Republic of Pochinco is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Palaiologos with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 5.629 billion Pochincans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komenostaniopolis. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, online tourism reviews of Pochinco are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and protests are prohibited from blocking traffic. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pochinco's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Pochincan Heterodoxy, and its currency is the Pochincan Drakhma.

Pochinco is ranked 146th in Texas and 106,696th in the world for Most Average, scoring -107 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
