OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Canae Ardea Gularis with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed population of 19.564 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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, the tenet of free speech is held dear, Porcu's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. 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 7th in European Continent and 12,801st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
