The Democratic Republic of Poliannum is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 766 million Poliannumians 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 Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldenshore. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Poliannumian economy, worth 31.8 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,536 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, there is something rotten in the state of Poliannum, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Poliannum's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poliannum is ranked 166,893rd in the world and 566th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.16 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
