The Republic of Pontbridge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Stylesjl with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 23.332 billion Pontbridgers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pontbridge. The average income tax rate is 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pontbridger economy, worth a remarkable 9,534 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 408,651 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, P-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown. Pontbridge's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pontbridge is ranked 29,003rd in the world and 3rd in Pontbridge Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
