OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Pomplamouse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Grandiose Grand Pomplamouse Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.985 billion Pomplamouseans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soda Fountain. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Government officials across Pomplamouse are being "encouraged" to adopt Honey Badgers to set an example for the populace, guns are banned, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime is totally unknown. Pomplamouse's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Ball.

Pomplamouse is ranked 19th in Skyrim and 26,299th in the world for Safest, scoring 162.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
