The Maritime Republics of Potuxapeake is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Liza Fenwick with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.6 billion Potuxapeakans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brandywine. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Potuxapeakan economy, worth 733 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 63,203 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

International terrorists often get their weapons supply in Potuxapeake, bins outnumber trees in city parks, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potuxapeake's national animal is the great blue heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholocism.

Potuxapeake is ranked 146,973rd in the world and 23rd in Gay Equality for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.29 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
