The Grand Imperial Union of Poltonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HEM Emperor Augustine VII Romefeller with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.9 billion Poltonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Acheon. The average income tax rate is 29.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poltonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,146 trillion Poltonic dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 197,868 Poltonic dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown. Poltonia's national animal is the Poltonic Imperial eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Poltonic Church of Saint Augustine.

Poltonia is ranked 16,798th in the world and 1st in The Imperial Dominion for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,147.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
