The Fully Militarized Nation of The Dictatorship POD is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Devicks with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.572 billion PODans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Lee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.1%.

The frighteningly efficient PODan economy, worth a remarkable 7,022 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 358,789 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), there's no weight to modern politics, and doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Dictatorship POD's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dictatorship POD is ranked 15,883rd in the world and 21st in Sunalaya for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
