The People's Republic of Pokoko is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 437 million Pokokoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pokoko City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pokokoan economy, worth 47.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 109,005 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 620,106 per year while the poor average 9,327, a ratio of 66.5 to 1.

The government seizes the property of the recently deceased, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, the navy's new flotilla is gonna be a thrilla, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pokoko's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pokoko is ranked 150,334th in the world and 6,952nd in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 361.86 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
