The Republic of Pokoreniye is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.104 billion Pokoreniyeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pokoreniyean economy, worth 59.5 trillion Pokoreniye Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,889 Pokoreniye Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has incinerated the international climate treaty in a public coal-burning ceremony, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pokoreniye's national animal is the Black Mamba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pokoreniye is ranked 34,423rd in the world and 1,368th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 105.97 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
