The Kingdom of Italy of Ponlania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Umberto II with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.034 billion Italians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 32.8%.

The powerhouse Italian economy, worth 267 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 88,277 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, being King Umberto II has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ponlania's national animal is the Grey wolf and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Ponlania is ranked 32,528th in the world and 8th in World Conference for Most Developed, scoring 72.44 on the Human Development Index.
