The Republic of Pounara is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.834 billion Pounaris 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imuhend. The average income tax rate is 82.7%.

The all-consuming Pounari economy, worth 766 trillion guras a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,376 guras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, and only persecuted professionals need apply. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pounara's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pounara is ranked 154,678th in the world and 7,962nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 17.46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
