The Colony of POPULICA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Contolus Contolatus with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.018 billion POPULICAians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Populicorp. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.2%.

The frighteningly efficient POPULICAian economy, worth 179 trillion POPS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 176,579 POPS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 595,621 per year while the poor average 38,751, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

POPULICAian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, the nation was recently voted as the most stylish in the Rejected Realms, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and murderers and thieves claim divine inspiration to avoid prosecution. Crime is totally unknown. POPULICA's national animal is the Dogedoge, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Contolustus.

POPULICA is ranked 99,794th in the world and 1,896th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 180.90816894092 days.
