The Golden Koala Bear of Porflox is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Tektop Tip with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 894 million Porfloxians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starlight City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth 154 trillion Drops of Popi flavored Suns a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 172,993 Drops of Popi flavored Suns, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Tektop Tip's majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porflox's national animal is the Zilba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porflox is ranked 27,823rd in the world and 440th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,709.25 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
