The Republic of Porcu is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Canae Ardea Gularis with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 8.903 billion, 8.87 billion of whom are zombies, 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 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 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 4th in European Continent and 2,441st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 18 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Porcu is currently considering its options.

People: 32,890,517

Dead: 10,911,005,190

Survival Rate: 0.17%
