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 irreverence towards religion, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.879 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.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soda Fountain. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pomplamousean economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion Balls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,695 Balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pomplamouse's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pomplamouse is ranked 35th in Skyrim and 113,681st in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
