The United People's Republics of Podria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Parliament of the Proles with a fair hand, and remarkable for its feral children, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.674 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 prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Podridia. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Podri economy, worth 630 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 111,068 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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.

Podria is ranked 8,421st in the world and 82nd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,763.77 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
