LeaderExecutive Council


The United Socialist Republic of Poliski is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Executive Council with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.919 billion Poliskians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portlinsk. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poliskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Drayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,124 Drayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, glamping Poliskians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and Executive Council always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poliski's national animal is the Nardoragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poliski is ranked 12,769th in the world and 3rd in The Blue Star Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,793.99 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
