The Republic of Very Pog is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Oscar Pog with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 1.821 billion Pogians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poglandria. The average income tax rate is 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Pogian economy, worth 249 trillion Pogs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,215 Pogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, diplomatic cables about Oscar Pog have suddenly been very flattering, and the VPBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Very Pog's national animal is the Poggers, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Free WiFi.

Very Pog is ranked 250,548th in the world and 13,084th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.91 crimes per hour.
