The Federal Republic of Powder River is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 447 million Powder Riverians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lewis and Clark. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Powder Riverian economy, worth 6.85 trillion River Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 15,315 River Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, nude art is becoming wildly popular, women across the country are tying the knot, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Powder River's national animal is the black-footed ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Powder River is ranked 155,114th in the world and 244th in Thaecia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.92 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
