The Complex of Polybios is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Polybios with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.129 billion Polybians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The powerhouse Polybiosian economy, worth 89.2 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,005 Drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, and The Cult of Polybios has been named as Polybios's national religion. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Polybios's national animal is the Faun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Polybios.

Polybios is ranked 23,667th in the world and 1,001st in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
