The Republic of Poquaoi is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Me with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.596 billion Poqs 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, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guerville. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Poquaoian economy, worth 978 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 174,858 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Me always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Pounds of property damage, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown. Poquaoi's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No.

Poquaoi is ranked 31,116th in the world and 43rd in Europeia for Most Extreme, scoring 33.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
