The Sultanate of Pooor is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 381 million Pooorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Pooorian economy, worth 6.23 trillion ration tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 16,356 ration tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have never heard foreign radio, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pooor's national animal is the drunk bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pooor is ranked 140,406th in the world and 179th in Thaecia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 95.93 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
