The Hipsterdom of Upper Portlandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Kyle MacLachlan with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.582 billion Upper Portlandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portland. The average income tax rate is 71.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Upper Portlandian economy, worth 144 trillion cacaos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 91,457 cacaos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Upper Portlandia's national animal is the organic chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freeganism.

Upper Portlandia is ranked 140,929th in the world and 7,707th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -55.7 on the Hayek Index.
