The Free Land of PortlandOregon is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 15.072 billion PortlandOregonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant PortlandOregonian economy, worth 60.9 trillion unknowns 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 4,043 unknowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary and the tiger is a protected species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PortlandOregon's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PortlandOregon is ranked 69,167th in the world and 1st in The Pacific Northwest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
