Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Servius Aemilius Cesca with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.697 billion Porcuians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, 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 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 7,079 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 275,484 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 150,775th in the world and 22nd in NationStates World Regions for Fattest Citizens, with 1.37 Obesity Rate.
