The Republic of Porfloxia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 206 million Porfloxians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The thriving Porfloxian economy, worth 14.6 trillion Popis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 70,916 Popis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,286 per year while the poor average 16,053, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Zilba Dung" has been declared a national treasure, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Porfloxia's national animal is the Zilba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Porfloxia is ranked 230,644th in the world and 198th in Refugia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.63 Tourists Per Hour.
