The Peoples Republic of Politiania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Yohannes Kariuki with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.118 billion Politianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nampula. The average income tax rate is 83.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Politianian economy, worth a remarkable 4,595 trillion Escudoes 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 454,170 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Politiania's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Politiania is ranked 85,687th in the world and 6th in Soviet Democracy for Fattest Citizens, with 10.4 Obesity Rate.
