The Holy Empire of Poolplayers is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Long Rake with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.386 billion Poolplayersians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corner Pocket. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Teenage fathers are forced to join the army, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and Poolplayers's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poolplayers's national animal is the Gopher, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Order of The Green Felt, and its currency is the 8 Ball.

Poolplayers is ranked 3rd in Balder and 204th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 77 on the Enoch Index.
