Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Vopiscus Tarquinius Atratinus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 21.26 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 tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,198 trillion Denariuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 291,578 Denariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, the government spends millions of Denariuses every year prosecuting spammers, and the Bear is a protected species. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Porcu's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 1st in European Continent and 3,254th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
