The Zombie Koala of Porflox is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Creativity with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.827 billion Porfloxians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, 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 Porflox City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth 482 trillion Zombies a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 264,169 Zombies, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Porflox's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Porflox is ranked 5,048th in the world and 47th in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 40,726.93 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
