The Armed Republic of Puhja is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 279 million Puhjans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puhja City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.1%.

The powerhouse Puhjan economy, worth 26.9 trillion Kroons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 96,517 Kroons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 279,122 per year while the poor average 26,463, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Puhjans any less frightened. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Puhja's national animal is the Eurasian Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Puhja is ranked 34,565th in the world and 406th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 96,517.72 Standard Monetary Units.
