Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vopiscus Tarquinius Atratinus with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 23.207 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 relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken 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 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,430 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 277,096 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', abortions are routinely performed in Porcu's hospitals, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 91,988th in the world and 9th in NationStates World Regions for Highest Drug Use, scoring 65.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
