The Socialist Paradise of Pormistan is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.974 billion Pormians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leafton. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pormian economy, worth 559 trillion Pormas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,570 Pormas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, high school bands practice by moonlight, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pormistan's national animal is the Pormian River Eel, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pormistan is ranked 13,264th in the world and 11th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Developed, scoring 88.3 on the Human Development Index.
