The United Federation of Pollariaua is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Benjamin O'Bryant with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.967 billion Pollarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Ellisdon. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pollarian economy, worth 342 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,603 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Out-of-work actors say they can't complain, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pollariaua's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Government.

Pollariaua is ranked 182,858th in the world and 183rd in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
