The Principality of Polata City is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prince James II with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.602 billion Polatans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Government Center. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Polatan economy, worth 539 trillion Polata City Pounds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 71,033 Polata City Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, and workers have their fruitcake and eat it too. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polata City's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Polata City is ranked 35,372nd in the world and 1,985th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 68.35 on the Human Development Index.
