The Holy Empire of Poolplayers is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Long Rake with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.496 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 9,924 trillion 8 Balls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 422,401 8 Balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, Poolplayers's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, criminals are thrown to the Gophers to repay their debt to society, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. 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 1st in Balder and 39th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 107 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
