The Principality of Polata City is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mary Sasor with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 10.394 billion Polatans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Government Center. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Polatan economy, worth 742 trillion Polata City Pounds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,388 Polata City Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polata City's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Polata City is ranked 218,551st in the world and 4th in ZDay Command Center for Rudest Citizens, with 18.82 Insults Per Minute.
