The People's Republic of Plovinad is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 878 million Plovinadians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Podzemnyy. The average income tax rate is 27.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Plovinadian economy, worth 77.8 trillion Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,590 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader has just been declared ruler of Plovinad in an international press conference, Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, and it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plovinad's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plovinad is ranked 204,285th in the world and 92nd in Kantrias for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.68 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
