The Republic of Podunkia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 264 million Podunkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Podunkian economy, worth 16.4 trillion onions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 61,982 onions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Podunkia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Podunkia is ranked 224,034th in the world and 7,530th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.26 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
