The Colony of The Pop Rock Alliance is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.093 billion Pop Rock Allianceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
