The Actual Person of Porflox is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Creativity with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, disturbing lack of elderly people, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.422 billion Porfloxians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Starlight City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,557 trillion Popis 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 344,594 Popis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,867,335 per year while the poor average 8,229, a ratio of 348 to 1.

Nose plugs are the latest Porfloxian fashion accessory, private digital records now come with a convenient "download" button, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Porflox's national animal is the KOALA, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Koalaism.

Porflox is ranked 3,757th in the world and 38th in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 277.23 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
