The Republic of Pokemanland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Kiir with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.691 billion Pokemanlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. The average income tax rate is 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pokemanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,909 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 285,404 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Slaves who produce weapons are given free samples, Pokemanlandians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all. Crime is totally unknown. Pokemanland's national animal is the Sea Cucumber, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pokemanland is ranked 30,819th in the world and 1,462nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,552.42 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
