The Lucky Holy Gold Ghost Golden of Porflox is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by St Patrick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 931 million Porfloxians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starlight City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Porfloxian economy, worth 165 trillion Gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,656 Gold bars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Porfloxian mussels the biggest in 10000 Islands, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porflox's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porflox is ranked 17,468th in the world and 24th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 87 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
