OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Canae Ardea Gularis with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 19.261 billion Porcuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Public Transport are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porcu's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Denarius.

Porcu is ranked 1st in European Continent and 419th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 219 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
