The Stratocratic Republic of Porotia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nenad Stosic with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.985 billion Porotians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telograv. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porotian economy, worth 617 trillion Poroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,871 Poroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most of the population has had bad experiences with hoes, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porotia's national animal is the Porotian Spikeball, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porotia is ranked 61,068th in the world and 13th in PCM for Most Corrupt Governments, with 17.7 kickbacks per hour.
