The Democratic Republic of Pogthebravelandia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Pog with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 2.097 billion Pogthebravelandians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogtropolis. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pogthebravelandian economy, worth 240 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,857 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogthebravelandia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nothing.

Pogthebravelandia is ranked 9,602nd in the world and 169th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 90.49 on the Human Development Index.
