The Average Red Marsupial of Poleande is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Whocrs Foregn Naime with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.368 billion Poleskis 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polinske. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poleandean economy, worth 461 trillion arlues a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 195,055 arlues, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All guns must be registered, all the playground's a stage for Poleandean schoolchildren, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime is totally unknown. Poleande's national animal is the manimal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is My Religion.

Poleande is ranked 13,906th in the world and 468th in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,686.35 Prayers Per Hour.
