The Holy Empire of Poolplayers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Long Rake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.765 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.
The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corner Pocket. The income tax rate is 100%.
The powerhouse Poolplayersian economy, worth a remarkable 9,911 trillion 8 Balls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 417,042 8 Balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour. 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, and its national religion is The Order of The Green Felt.
Poolplayers is ranked 5th in Osiris and 255th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 1,722 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
