The Stratocratic Republic of Porotia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nenad Stosic with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.393 billion Porotians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telograv. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Porotian economy, worth 541 trillion Poroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,170 Poroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Porotia's national animal is the Porotian Wood Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Porotia is ranked 90,713th in the world and 3,963rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,754.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
