OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Vopiscus Tarquinius Atratinus with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 19.944 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Denariuses of property damage. 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 1,396th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 64 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
