Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Imperial Pontia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Atheris with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.535 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 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pontic economy, worth 209 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,415 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Pontic Space Agency, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, Manticores are considered a delicacy, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Imperial Pontia's national animal is the Manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lothric.

Imperial Pontia is ranked 125,372nd in the world and 6,247th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
