The United Federation of Pollariaua is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Benjamin O'Bryant with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.696 billion Pollarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Ellisdon. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pollarian economy, worth 189 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,025 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, they say that Pollarians made a dessert and called it peace, and glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pollariaua's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Government.

Pollariaua is ranked 189,390th in the world and 245th in New Western Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.22 on the Rand Index.
