Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Porcu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Servius Aemilius Cesca with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.165 billion Porcuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariminae. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porcuian economy, worth a remarkable 6,926 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 275,226 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Porcu, foreign musicians that Servius Aemilius Cesca dislikes are turned away at the border, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime is totally unknown. Porcu's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porcu is ranked 178,123rd in the world and 38th in NationStates World Regions for Most Devout, with 2.54 Prayers Per Hour.
