The Imperial Federation of Pontianus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 5.165 billion italians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient italian economy, worth 195 trillion Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,782 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pontianus's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pontianus is ranked 46,172nd in the world and 96th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,305.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
