The Dictatorship of Pold Yoda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Abhinav Pandey with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.25 billion Pold Yodans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mumbai. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Pold Yodan economy, worth 62.9 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 19,365 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and Air Pold Yoda is rumored to receive more government funding than the Pold Yodan Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pold Yoda's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harappan religion.

Pold Yoda is ranked 45,371st in the world and 116th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 28.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
