The Democratic People's Republic of Pochinco is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chairman Palaiologos with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.969 billion Pochincans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komenostaniopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The large but sluggish Pochincoan economy, worth 339 trillion Pochincan Drakhmas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,813 Pochincan Drakhmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, Chairman Palaiologos panders to nontraditional families, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. 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, and its national religion is Pochincan Heterodoxy.
