Pog Moments

Population824 million


The Empire of Pog Moments is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 824 million Poggers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The pog champ economy, worth 58.0 trillion V-bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 70,378 V-bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

End-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang, bars are packed at all hours, pizzerias must now display shrines to the Pizza God, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pog Moments's national animal is the Chungus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pog Moments is ranked 133,664th in the world and 5,632nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
