The Silver Islands of Pogglind is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Elbbsas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.639 billion Pogglians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Hinton Caverns. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pogglian economy, worth 435 trillion doubloons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,272 doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, many friends and relatives of Elbbsas have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime is totally unknown. Pogglind's national animal is the pug hog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pogglind is ranked 134,769th in the world and 295th in Wintreath for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,072.78 Standard Monetary Units.
