Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Vopiscus Tarquinius Atratinus with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 23.378 billion Porcuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,470 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 276,793 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ariminae's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, military spending is on the increase, and the nation's latest batch of politicians include internet comedians, an alleged serial killer, and a highly trained Elk. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 500th in the world and 2nd in NationStates World Regions for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 81.31 Whatever.
