The Republic of Powlanska is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Trous with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.573 billion Powlanskans 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Powlanska City. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Powlanskan economy, worth 374 trillion Powsklas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,533 Powsklas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. Crime is totally unknown. Powlanska's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Powlanska is ranked 80,176th in the world and 455th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 175,427 Standard Monetary Units.
