The Holy Empire of Pogaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Emmanuel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 43.043 billion Pogarians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Pogarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,589 trillion kosses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 83,388 kosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural Pogarians stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, a spy for a spy makes the whole world less radioactive, the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission, and a surprisingly large share of the nation's budget is used to buy new houses for immigrants. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogaria's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Truthism.

Pogaria is ranked 305,537th in the world and 10th in The Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -43.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
