The Blue Commonwealth of Porlock is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 622 million Porlockians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lockier. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Porlockian economy, worth 49.9 trillion Locks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,157 Locks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porlock's national animal is the Shadowcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porlock is ranked 165,273rd in the world and 8,193rd in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.51 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
