The Militaric Capitalist state of Greater East Portage is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Prez with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.204 billion portegeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Klamazia City. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient portegean economy, worth 382 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 173,385 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater East Portage's national animal is the dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is TECHNOLOGY.

Greater East Portage is ranked 7,910th in the world and 404th in Lazarus for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 58.7 Whatever.
