Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vopiscus Tarquinius Atratinus with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 23.557 billion Porcuians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,507 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 276,253 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 1,629th in the world and 1st in NationStates World Regions for Highest Average Incomes, with 276,253.33 Standard Monetary Units.
