The Republic of Por4 is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working population of 265 million Por4ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 24.3%.

The Por4ian economy, worth 12.4 trillion Golden Nuggets a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 46,934 Golden Nuggets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime is moderate. Por4's national animal is the The All-Powerful Golden Koala, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Por4 is ranked 40,597th in the world and 1,139th in Osiris for Most Primitive, scoring 57.27 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
