OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Pomplamouse is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grandiose Grand Pomplamouse Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6.16 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Balls of property damage, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. 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 267th in New Warsaw Pact and 109,281st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.026 Stalins.
