The Free Land of Poll Party is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 29 million Poll Partyians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Poll Partyian economy, worth 441 billion Tinfoils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,223 Tinfoils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poll Party's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poll Party is ranked 62,425th in the world and 16th in Refugia for Most Armed, with 0.39 Weapons Per Person.
