The Kingdom of Pondingonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Governor OSullivan with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.003 billion Pondingonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scuztown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Pondingonian economy, worth 140 trillion Pondaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 140,262 Pondaris, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.
