Little Podemitas

Population8 million


The Democratic Republic of Little Podemitas is a tiny, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8 million Little Podemitasians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The weak Little Podemitasian economy, worth 196 billion EURS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 24,560 EURS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, ghost regiments exist only on paper, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Little Podemitas's national animal is the Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Little Podemitas is ranked 174,125th in the world and 2nd in Union of Lunar Soviet Republics for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 244.1 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
