Povo Unido

Population21.947 billion


The Uniao Portuguesa of Povo Unido is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.947 billion Povo Unidoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Povo Unidoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,614 trillion escudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 73,562 escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Povo Unido's national animal is the leitão, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Povo Unido is ranked 45,577th in the world and 4th in Portugal de Esquerda for Most Extreme, scoring 28.43 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
