The Republic of Publica is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dylan Carter with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.016 billion Publicans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oppida Prima. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Publican economy, worth 845 trillion denarii 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, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 168,573 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Publican tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, and the government builds houses for foreign newcomers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Publica's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Publica is ranked 19,407th in the world and 4th in Libertas for Most Stationary, with 726.44851423932 Days.
