The Royaume of Popaholick is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jacqueline St-Miquelon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 22.592 billion Popaholickans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marseille. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Popaholickan economy, worth a remarkable 7,466 trillion Francs a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 330,492 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have to identify all the polar bears in a blizzard photo in order to access their bank account, they say that Popaholickans made a dessert and called it peace, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Popaholick's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Popaholick is ranked 935th in the world and 17th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 235.56 quips per hour.
