The Holy Empire of Imperial Pontia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Atheris with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.325 billion Pontics are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Propast. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pontic economy, worth 487 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 146,496 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Manticore, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Imperial Pontia, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Imperial Pontia's national animal is the Manticore, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lothric.

Imperial Pontia is ranked 87,145th in the world and 4,603rd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 987.81 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
