The Republic of Poquaoi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Me with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.654 billion Poqueses are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guerville. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Poquaoian economy, worth 274 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,583 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poqueses have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poquaoi's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Poquaoi is ranked 166,742nd in the world and 790th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
