The Republic of Mr Poll is a large, safe nation, renowned for its fear of technology and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 50 million Mr Pollians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Mr Pollian economy, worth 1.59 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,870 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Leader's eyes only', employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mr Poll's national animal is the wolf.

Mr Poll is ranked 64,771st in the world and 2nd in POLLS for Most Extreme, scoring 21.14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
