The Pluricontinental Union of The Greater Portuguese Confederation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mateus Ramires with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.246 billion Portuguese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth 604 trillion escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 269,097 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, Mateus Ramires has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Portuguese Confederation's national animal is the iberian lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Greater Portuguese Confederation is ranked 17,878th in the world and 349th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,663.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
