The Empire of Polonge is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Maria Christina with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.83 billion Polongains enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bledapestra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Polongean economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion ěres a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,742 ěres, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 432,009 per year while the poor average 22,715, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

Behind every local dictator is a Polongean advisor whispering in their ear, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek", and the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polonge's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Polonge is ranked 38,909th in the world and 7th in Meillur for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
