The Silver Islands of Pogglind is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elbbsas with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.715 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 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pogglian economy, worth 522 trillion doubloons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,846 doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and days begin with afternoon tea. 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 137,541st in the world and 267th in Wintreath for Most Primitive, scoring -184.05 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
