The Never Lying of Pooka Nights is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 5.612 billion Pooka Nightsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.0%.

The thriving Pooka Nightsian economy, worth 332 trillion Glamours a year, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 59,249 Glamours, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 183,826 per year while the poor average 14,701, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

The government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pooka Nights's national animal is the All, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pooka Nights is ranked 225,695th in the world and 197th in Caer Sidi for Most Income Equality, scoring 8 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
