The United People's Republics of Podria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Parliament of the Proles with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.885 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 government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Podridia. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Podri economy, worth 651 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 110,701 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear. Crime is totally unknown. Podria's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Podria is ranked 226,852nd in the world and 429th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.77 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
