The United Socialist States of Portlorrig is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Harold Harry Olsen with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 2.708 billion Portlorrigians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odonset. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Portlorrigian economy, worth 64.5 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 23,820 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military funding has been stripped back, Portlorrig successfully hosted the Oneid Olympics, elections have been outlawed, and the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portlorrig's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

Portlorrig is ranked 200,943rd in the world and 228th in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 340.34 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
