The Republic of Portsville 20 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.333 billion Portsville 20ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Portsville 20ian economy, worth 227 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,585 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portsville 20's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Portsville 20 is ranked 212,609th in the world and 6,616th in the Pacific for Most Secular, with 7.4 Atheism Rate.
