The Silver Islands of Pogglind is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elbbsas with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.212 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 322 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 76,582 doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and many friends and relatives of Elbbsas have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 180,850th in the world and 211th in Wintreath for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15.68 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
