The Republic of The Pontic State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dionysios Costadin with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.442 billion Pontians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trebizond. The average income tax rate is 26.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pontic economy, worth 80.7 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 55,978 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Pontic State's national animal is the Golden Eagle and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

The Pontic State is ranked 170,116th in the world and 859th in Europe for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.87 kickbacks per hour.
