The Holy Empire of Pogaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Emmanuel with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 38.443 billion Pogarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Pogarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,923 trillion kosses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 76,042 kosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law says that all Pogarians are created equal — no matter how they were created, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogaria's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Truthism.

Pogaria is ranked 228,554th in the world and 3rd in The Empire for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1392.73 on the Hayek Index.
