The Republic of Politiania is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Maria Kovaleva with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.336 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovkin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Politianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,060 trillion Havars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 367,086 Havars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,359,305 per year while the poor average 69,805, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Politiania's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bhuddism.

Politiania is ranked 3,973rd in the world and 1st in The Great Red Union for Most Cultured, scoring 166 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
