Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Imperial Pontia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Atheris with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.912 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 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 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pontic economy, worth 280 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 146,906 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, bike rage is all the rage, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. 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 75,514th in the world and 3,947th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 783.36 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
