The United People's Republics of Podria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Parliament of the Proles with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.423 billion Podrian love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Podridia. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Podri economy, worth 618 trillion labour credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,016 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, billions are being spent on a new island airport, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and televisions are often seized to pay for overdue television license fees. Crime is totally unknown. Podria's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Podria is ranked 6,195th in the world and 42nd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,111.8 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
