The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Servius Aemilius Cesca with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.829 billion Porcuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,804 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 253,610 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Servius Aemilius Cesca's questionably sane new coalition partners, workers have seized control of the economy, Porcu's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Porcu is ranked 164,011th in the world and 31st in NationStates World Regions for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.11 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
