The Imperial Empire of Portugal Is Great is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Klaus Vetz with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, smutty television, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.371 billion Weak Portuguese are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Lisbon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Portugal Is Greatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,675 trillion Stolns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 354,414 Stolns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,270,488 per year while the poor average 3,819, a ratio of 856 to 1.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, the full title of Hon Klaus Vetz Vcte Mgve MF IEPIGLM GCPIGE runs to several pages, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portugal Is Great's national animal is the Housecat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Foxism.

Portugal Is Great is ranked 1,785th in the world and 2nd in The Labyrinth for Largest Black Market, with 1,614 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
