The 1st Podrian Submarine Division

Population245 million

Currencyvery soggy assembly note

The Armed Republic of The 1st Podrian Submarine Division is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 245 million Podrian submarines 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped 1st Podrian Submarine Divisionian economy, worth 8.34 trillion very soggy assembly notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,025 very soggy assembly notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 1st Podrian Submarine Division's national animal is the leviathan.

The 1st Podrian Submarine Division is ranked 193,522nd in the world and 4th in AMURICA for Best Weather, with 100 meters of sunlight.
