The The Sanesolian union of Porymonia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Holy spirit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.425 billion soulgodias 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, 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 Aqordon. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Porymonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,434 trillion imperial juwels 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, 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 an amazing 324,277 imperial juwels, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

A shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, new urban roads are threatening city parks, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porymonia's national animal is the White crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the perfect image.

Porymonia is ranked 87,698th in the world and 427th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
