OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Poplar Grove is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. Its compassionate, cynical population of 7.746 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 66%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, Presbyterian has been named as Poplar Grove's national religion, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and the deer is a protected species. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Poplar Grove's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Presbyterian, and its currency is the dollar.

Poplar Grove is ranked 581st in Japvia and 106,394th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
