The Commonwealth of Porlock is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 609 million Porlockians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lockier. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Porlockian economy, worth 49.0 trillion Locks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,413 Locks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and it's never "just a game" with Porlockian sports fans. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porlock's national animal is the Shadowcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porlock is ranked 169,642nd in the world and 8,592nd in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
