The Rogue Nation of Pho Ter is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 508 million Junkies are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CBD City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The very strong Pho Terian economy, worth 32.3 trillion Weeds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 63,641 Weeds, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

Record numbers of students are leaving school to enter the workforce, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, pregnant women make easy targets, and reddish-brown is the new black. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pho Ter's national animal is the Marijuana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pho Ter is ranked 90,425th in the world and 2nd in TRA for Most Developed, scoring 57.8 on the Human Development Index.
