The Most Serene Republic of Polihy is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 619 million Polihians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poliu'pele. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Polihyian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Pols 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 41,961 Pols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, straitjackets are a common religious garb, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polihy's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Polihy is ranked 26,369th in the world and 1,303rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,964.78 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
