The Democratic Republic of Pogthebravelandia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Pog with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.482 billion Pogthebravelandians 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogtropolis. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pogthebravelandian economy, worth 296 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,282 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", black tea is only available on the black market, and councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogthebravelandia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nothing.

Pogthebravelandia is ranked 215,092nd in the world and 799th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -278.82 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
