The Rosy Red Republics of Podria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Seosamh Cruach with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, feral children, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.062 billion Podrian 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Podridia. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Podri economy, worth 913 trillion labour credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,351 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear. Crime is totally unknown. Podria's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Podria is ranked 246,998th in the world and 355th in The Leftist Assembly for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.32 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
