The Sosialisto Diktaturasy of Porde is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 721 million Pordeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vellarana. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pordean economy, worth 68.6 trillion manats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,107 manats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Porde's national animal is the none, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Porde is ranked 92,478th in the world and 1,212th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 124,271 Standard Monetary Units.
