LeaderEmperor Emmanuel


The Holy Empire of Pogaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Emmanuel with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 35.204 billion Pogarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Pogarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,425 trillion kosses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 68,901 kosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the Pogarian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", there's a big brother in every prison, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogaria's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Truthism.

Pogaria is ranked 4,537th in the world and 2nd in The Empire for Highest Economic Output, with 2,425 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
