Population4.407 billion



The Republic of Poquaoi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Me with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.407 billion Poqueses are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guerville. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Poquaoian economy, worth 671 trillion Pounds 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 152,398 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, too many developers spoil the codebase, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is totally unknown. Poquaoi's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poquaoi is ranked 4,470th in the world and 45th in Europeia for Largest Governments, scoring 41.69 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
