The The Crackling Koalas of Porflox is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lucky Divine Supreme Emperor Creativity with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.602 billion Porfloxians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucky Santa Reindeer Christmas Snow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,215 trillion Lucky Santa Reindeer Christmas Snows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 337,351 Lucky Santa Reindeer Christmas Snows, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,993,210 per year while the poor average 5,258, a ratio of 569 to 1.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Porflox's deadly femme fatales, Lucky Divine Supreme Emperor Creativity's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Porflox's national animal is the KOALA, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucky Santa Reindeer Christmas Snow.

Porflox is ranked 3,480th in the world and 78th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 147.78 quips per hour.
