The Shar of Pontanova is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nour I with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.094 billion PontanovianÚses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankara. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient PontanovianÚs economy, worth a remarkable 1,463 trillion Pontanoks 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,773 Pontanoks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pontanova's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pontanova is ranked 5,874th in the world and 3rd in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 57.39 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
