The Great Unwashed Masses of Polkstreet is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Polky with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 35.236 billion Polkstreeters enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-la. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Polkstreetian economy, worth a remarkable 4,939 trillion whoopies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 140,178 whoopies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polkstreet's national animal is the accordion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Polkstreet is ranked 240,048th in the world and 2nd in HiberNationStates for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -28.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
